Israeli forces fired tear gas canisters Palestinians in the overcrowded neighborhood as some men set fire to a pole where the forces had installed surveillance cameras to watch the people in Silwan, Palestinian news agency Wafa reported.
They also attacked a truck that shoots skunk water after arriving in the neighborhood to spray the homes and streets with foul water, Wafa added.
A Palestinian family made homeless today by illegal Israeli demolitions. The world is watching the ethnic cleansing in Silwan and Sheikh Jarrah (East Jerusalem), and doing nothing about it. In my prayers tonight, in my work tomorrow.
