2 arrested in protest against e. J'lem settlement

Two left-wing activists were arrested while trying to block a road in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Ras al-Amud in protest against a ceremony inaugurating a new Jewish settlement in the area.


Dozens of protesters chanted "There's no holiness in an occupied city" and "Settler, soldier, officer – disengage from Palestine." Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin, Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat took part in the inauguration of the settlement, which is located near Temple Mount.
