East Jerusalem residents shut down trading and schools on Thursday following the killing of 18 Palestinians in Beit Hanoun on Wednesday.
Some 200 additional students headed towards the Temple Mount, chanting nationalistic slogans. Police securing the Nablus Gate dispersed the developing riot with stun grenades. No injuries were reported. Two police officers were lightly wounded from rocks thrown by protestors in the Salach a-Din area in East Jerusalem. (Efrat Weiss)
