Violent riots in Jerusalem continue to be a nightly occurrence.

In the Arab-occupied neighborhood of Ras-Al Amud, residents threw Molotov cocktails at the police forces in the area. No injuries were reported in the incident.

For several weeks already, violent riots have broken out outside the Old City of Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate on Tuesday – bout a mile away from neighborhoods like Ras-Al Amud. The riots have forced bus routes to the Western Wall to shut down and prompted MKs Itamar Ben-Gvir and Betzalel Smotrich to tour the area.

Recently, the Knesset has enacted several measures aimed at combatting Arab crime throughout Israel. Among them was giving the police the authority to search homes without a warrant.
