A police officer was injured after being hit in the head and vehicles were damaged during riots by the Old City of Jerusalem on Thursday night, according to Israel Police
Rioters threw stones at police amid efforts to disperse the disturbance. The person suspected of attacking the officer was arrested.
Riots were also reported near the Damascus Gate of the Old City. A vehicle belonging to Jewish Israelis was reportedly attacked near the Old City as well, with pictures shared by Palestinian media showing a vehicle with the windshield cracked. 

Video from the scene showed crowds running in the area and attacking police officers, with one video shared on social media showing a police officer being thrown to the ground.
A video shared on social media on Thursday also showed a haredi youth being smacked in the face by a reportedly Arab person on the light rail in Jerusalem.”The shocking and antisemitic documentation is horrifying and frightening, the heart aches and finds it hard to believe that precisely in the Jewish state, an ultra-Orthodox person is brutally attacked by a miscreant just because of his ultra-Orthodox appearance,” said Shas leader Arye Deri in response to the attack of the haredi youth on Thursday night. “I call on the Israel Police to arrest the lowly offender and to severely punish him.”

The riots come as Muslims in Jerusalem and around the world celebrate Ramadan.
