23 Palestinian Rioters Arrested Since Last Night

Israeli police arrested at least 23 Palestinian extremists in Jerusalem overnight and during Monday, PA officials said, in the latest crackdown after months of violent clashes in the Holy City.

But a police spokeswoman confirmed only four arrests, without accounting for the number of people who might have been arrested by other security services.  

Those arrested were from Issawiya and Wadi Joz, as well as the Old City, according to the Palestinian Prisoners Club.
