Rellen in Oost-Jeruzalem (foto's)

Aan het begin van een door de Palestijnen uitgeroepen "Dag van de Woede" is het vandaag in Jeruzalem tot rellen gekomen. Volgens de Israëlische politie hebben tientallen demonstranten in de wijk Isawiya en het vluchtelingenkamp Shuafat stenen gegooid. De oproerpolitie joeg de menigte uit elkaar met geluidsgranaten en rubberen kogels. Volgens Palestijnse bronnen kwam het ook in andere wijken van Oost-Jeruzalem tot gewelddadigheden, toen de politie sit-ins met traangas en de wapenstok uit elkaar sloeg.

Hundreds of Palestinians clashed with security forces in east Jerusalem and the West Bank as tension boiled over Israel's announcement last week of plans to build 1,600 new Jewish settler homes in mainly Arab east Jerusalem, while a senior Hamas leader called for a new 'intifada,' or uprising.

Hundreds of Palestinians hurled rocks at Israeli police and set tires ablaze across the holy city's volatile eastern sector, where thousands of Israeli officers, including reinforcements brought in from other locations, were in place for a fifth straight day. The violence also spilled over into the nearby West Bank.

Palestinians mounted violent protests in Jerusalem on Tuesday and President Barack Obama's Middle East envoy cancelled plans to return to the region as a U.S.-Israeli crisis over Jewish settlement plans deepened.
