Dangerous East Jerusalem
Nadene Goldfoot
An Israeli army jeep was driving through East Jerusalem today and suddenly hit something, causing it to flip over.  After this happened, young Arabs from Issawiya shot fireworks at it and this set it on fire.  Issawiya is a Palestinian neighborhood on Mt. Scopus near the Hebrew University and a district that sees lots of clashing with the Israeli police. 

I'm wondering if something was put in the road on purpose to cause the accident.  I would suspect so, being these boys were ready and johnny on the spot armed with fireworks.  Luckily, there were no casualties.
