JERUSALEM, Israeli fanatics went on a rampage late Sunday early Monday in Palestinian areas inside and outside Jerusalem’s Old City as they marked the end of the Jewish Succot holiday, according to local Palestinian sources.
They said the extremist Israeli went on a hate rampage in Musrara neighborhood, just outside Damascus Gate, one of the main gates to the Old City, resulting in injury to five Palestinians.
The extremists assaulted Palestinians inside the Old City as well, smashed parked Palestinian cars and damaged shops as they marched inside the narrow Old City streets in all Palestinian areas.
Israeli police forces, which were present in large numbers, did not stop the extremist vigilantes but instead fired stun grenades at the Palestinians who tried to defend themselves, their homes and their property.
Police had earlier closed several roads inside and outside the Old City to facilitate movement of the extremist Israelis during their holiday but barring Palestinians from reaching their homes inside the Old City.
Meanwhile, extremist Jews continued their daily provocative tours of Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Muslim holy compound inside the Old City, on Monday as police ordered dozens of Palestinians to stay away from the holy site for at least two weeks in order to prevent protests against the provocative tours by the Jewish fanatics.
