Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC)Youths in Issawiya village of north Jerusalem torched an Israeli military jeep on Friday afternoon when it slid down a mountainous area west of the village. Israeli troops withdrew from the scene.

The driver had lost control of the vehicle, causing it to overturn. The driver managed to escape and flee, as young Palestinians then threw stones and firecrackers at the jeep, causing it to ignite.

Issawiya has witnessed recent clashes between Palestinian youth and Israeli troops, who fired vast quantities of tear gas on residents to disperse them.
