The Police has been conducting enforcement operations in the East Jerusalem neighborhoods of Isawiya and Silwan. The operations included numerous arrests, roadblocks to inspect vehicles, tax collection, house demolitions, shutting off water, various fines, searches and random checks of identification, and more.

Residents said police officers and commanders have admitted to them that in practice it is punishment in response to rock-throwing and other disturbances.

“Learn not to throw rocks. As long as you continue to throw rocks we aren’t leaving,” one Silwan resident said a police officer told him. (Haaretz)
