Police continue to set up checkpoints in volatile Arab Jerusalem neighborhoods

One day after police erected a temporary wall to stymie ongoing terrorist attacks from east Jerusalem’s Jabel Mukaber, several more checkpoints were added on Monday in flashpoint Arab neighborhoods in the capital.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said that apart from unrest in Silwan early Monday morning after a Palestinian family was forcefully removed from their home by Border Police, relative calm returned to the beleaguered capital.

He could not confirm reports of a curfew being imposed in Silwan.
