"Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) -- Violent clashes erupted in al-Bustan neighborhood of Silwan today after the end of the Friday prayer held weekly in al-Bustan protest tent. Confrontations were sparked by a heavy amassing of Israeli troops, first at the entrances to the village and then closing in. Each Friday sees tensions raised in Silwan as Israeli forces tighten the military stranglehold over the area.
Barriers were erected at these entrances from early morning, with the Wadi Rababa entrance closed entirely by troops. Israeli forces have been firing tear gas and rubber bullets at crowds of Palestinian residents, with clashes centered around Samer Sarhan street on the outskirts of Wadi Hilweh, named after the martyr killed by a settler guard last September.

مستعربين ... شاب مقدسي يقفز فوق سيارة المستعربين و يرمي المستعرب بحجر ليحرر صديقة منه ويلوذ المستعرب بالفرار
اعتقلت قوة من المستعربين مدعمة بالجنود الإسرائيليين ثلاثة أطفال وشاب مقدسي بعد وقوعه على الأرض اثر إطلاق النار باتجاهه من قبل قوات المستعربين. هذا وأصيب عدد من المواطنين والأطفال والشبان بجروح وصفت بأنها طفيفة، كما تناقل بعض الأهالي أخبار عن عمليات إطلاق رصاص حي على بعض الشبان، حيث شوهدت آثار دماء في ذلك المكان، هذا وذكرت مصادر طبية بأن احد المواطنين أصيب بقنبلة غاز في رأسه، إضافة إلى إصابات العديد من المواطنين والأطفال جراء استنشاقهم للغاز. كان هذا بعد مواجهات عنيفة اندلعت بعد مرور جيب عسكري من أمام خيمة حي البستان بشكل استفزازي أثناء خطبة الجمعة، وتكثفت المواجهات بعد صلاة الجمعة بشكل ملفت للنظر وذلك بعد أيام قليلة من اعتقال احد أعضاء لجنة حي البستان 'الشيخ موسى عودة'، حيث أشعل الشبان الإطارات المطاطية، وأغلقوا الشوارع في وجه السيارات العسكرية التي تواجدت في المكان بشكل استفزازي،
