Several injured in Jewish Army & Israeli Arabs clash

BAIT UL MAQDIS: Israeli police went on heightened alert Sunday following protests across the country over the fatal shooting of a 22-year-old Arab Israeli.

Thousands of Arabs took to the streets Saturday to protest the shooting, with many hurling rocks and firebombs at police. The protests continued Sunday with a general strike called by Arab Israeli community leaders and demonstrations outside universities and other institutions. The tensions add to those already raging in Bait ul Maqdis, where Palestinians from the eastern part of the city have been clashing almost daily with police over access to a disputed holy site.
