A violent brawl between rival families in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Wadi Jouz Saturday night has left one dead and four hospitalized, Ynet reported.Miriam Altkuri, 21, was killed by gunfire in the violent brawl.The violence seemingly took place outside the home of one of the families, which was on fire, KAN reported. The fight also saw the use of other firearms and fireworks.

This comes amid a number of other violent incidents in east Jerusalem.Earlier, a bus on its way to the Western Wall in the Old City was attacked, KAN reported.

Egged bus line 3 was attacked with stones as it drove through the city.
The Israeli news outlet shared a video of the incident to social media.

In addition, riots have broken out out near Nablus Gate by the Old City.

According to KAN, the riots had broken out during the evening and saw police need to use stun grenades, with at least one suspect arrested at the scene.

It is unclear at this time if all of these incidents are in any way related.These incidents also come a week after a bus was attacked in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Isawiya. The bus had driven through the neighborhood as a short cut, but was attacked with stones and a Molotov cocktail.Religious Zionist MK Itamar Ben-Gvir on Saturday night condemned the violence against Jews in east Jerusalem. “Jerusalem is becoming a Wild West,” he said in a statement, and called on Public Security Minister Amir Ohana to deal with these “terrorists.”
