Palestinian medical sources in Jerusalem reported on Wednesday at night that several Palestinian residents, including children and women, were wounded in Sheikh Jarrah.All those injured reported unprovoked attacks from Israeli soldiers and settlers.
Clashes took place after a group of settlers became violent while celebrating the Jewish Purim holiday, at and around the occupied home of al Ghawi family.
Local sources reported Israeli soldiers then arrived at the scene, kicking and clubbing the Palestinian residents.
The Israeli army and police closed all roads leading to Sheik Jarrah, preventing any Palestinian entry.
The army also designated Shiekh Jarrah a, ‘closed military zone,’ making entry virtually impossible.
