Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) — Israeli undercover forces raided Bir Ayyub district of Silwan immediately after the midday prayer today, firing a heavy barrage of tear gas and soundbombs.

Eyewitnesses state that Israeli police, accompanied by undercover forces, infiltrated the neighborhood in a small unmarked minibus. An attack of tear gas and sound grenades was then launched on those Palestinians attending the weekly public prayer in Al-Bustan protest tent. Undercover forces attempted to arrest several children present but were stopped by other youth.
Armed forces are also currently stationed in the Ein Fawqa area of Silwan, firing tear gas at Palestinian residents.
