Six Israeli security men injured in Palestinian “Naqba” unrest
Palestinians marking Naqba (the “Disaster” of Israeli independence) Wednesday clashed with Israeli police and army forces in and around Jerusalem. Outside Damascus Gate of the Old City, police repeatedly broke up disturbances. Two were injured by flying rockets in riots north of Jerusalem at Kalandia and the Givat Zeev junction on Highway 443. Near Hursa, west of Hebron, a bottle bomb injured four Israeli soldiers when their jeep overturned and caught fire. An Israeli civilian was beaten up in the Old City. And a rocket fired by Palestinians in the Gaza Strip exploded harmlessly in the Eshkol region.
