At least 20 Palestinians were injured after Israeli police used stun grenades and sprayed skunk water on them overnight in the flashpoint occupied East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Sheikh Jarrah, Al Jazeera reported.
There were clashes between Jewish settlers and Palestinians earlier Monday evening with Israeli media reporting stones and chairs were thrown between the opposing sides.
The Palestine Red Crescent said 20 Palestinians were wounded in the fighting and reports said several were arrested. Those hurt included 16 who suffered from pepper spray and tear gas-related injuries, and an elderly person who was hit in the head.
The medic service also said several of its ambulances were targeted by Jewish settlers who hurled stones at its vehicles.
