Tisha B’Av March in East Jerusalem Marked by Violence and Property Damage
In Bab-al-Asbat area, in occupied East Jerusalem, the annual Tisha B’Av march led to violence. The Jewish occasion, which marks "the grieving of the temple destruction", invoked violence when a group of settlers, accompanied by Israeli soldiers, threw stones at Palestinian residents and destroyed three cars.
The march, which was launched from Bab al-Amoud, advanced toward Jerusalem's Western Wall for the Jewish religious occasion.br />
