Rocks Thrown at Firefighters in Eastern Jerusalem

Two fire brigades who were called in today (Monday) to gain control over a brush fire in the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of A-Tur were subject to having stones thrown at them by area residents.

The firefighters stood their ground during the stoning to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby houses, but eventually had to pull back, as their lives were at risk.
