A police force operating in eastern Jerusalem on Tuesday required rescue after being attacked by a mob of Arab rioters. 

The attack occurred in the Shuafat neighborhood of Jerusalem, near a house of mourning for the terrorist responsible for a stabbing attack in the capital on Saturday night.  

The rioters cried "Allahu Akbar" (Allah is greater) and tried to wound the police officers on scene. 

Security forces called for help and Border Patrol officers deployed to Shuafat were able to extricate the police unharmed. 

Video of the attack obtained by Channel 10 shows several plainclothes officers standing with their weapons drawn against a mob of Arabs until a group of Border Policeman rescue them. 

The incident ended without any casualties or injuries; only one rioter was arrested.
