Israeli police clash with Palestinians in Jerusalem during second night of unrest

Israel’s Supreme court has delayed a court hearing set for tomorrow on the planned evictions of Palestinians in Jerusalem, after some of the worst unrest seen in years in the city.

Last night police used stun grenades, rubber bullets and water cannons against Palestinians gathered outside Jerusalem’s Old City during the holiest night of Ramadan.
