Residents of the East Jerusalem village of Issawiya claim that the police subjects them to collective punishment.  According to residents, the police initiates daily arrests without justification in order to cause provocations, and every vehicle entering the vehicle is checked by police safety inspectors.  In addition, several residents have had their water supply cut off due to debts accrued to the “Gihon” water corporation.

Ninety Paratroopers Brigade recruits marched with the IDF unit’s banners through the Muslim Quarter in Jerusalem. The group of soldiers was lead by Rabbi Matti Dan, head of the Ateret Cohanim group. IDF Spokesperson’s Office said, “Unfortunately a group of civilians chose to take advantage of this dignified event (swearing-in ceremony) to create a provocation intended for the media. The fact that media outlets were invited to cover the event proves this was a planned provocation.” Ateret Cohanim, on the other hand, said that the tour was coordinated with the IDF and officers accompanied the group.
