Newspapers Review: Israeli police attacks against Palestinians in East Jerusalem focus of dailies

RAMALLAH, Saturday, April 24, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli police attacks against Palestinians in occupied East Jerusalem that have continued every night for 11 consecutive days were highlighted on the front page of the three Palestinian Arabic dailies published today.

Al-Quds daily said in a headline that went across the top of the front page with pictures below it that the toll of the Israeli occupiers and settlers’ attacks exceed 100 injuries and 50 arrests as the confrontation continues.

Al-Ayyam said also in a headline across the top of the front page with a picture that the occupation renews its oppression of the Jerusalemites, injuries and arrests, and area of the clashes expands.

The paper quoted Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh saluting what he described as “the courage of our people in Jerusalem and their heroic stand against the settlers and soldiers of the occupation.”

Al-Quds said Shtayyeh condemned “the Israeli terrorism.”

It said people rallied in the West Bank and Gaza in support of the Palestinians in Jerusalem, and published Arab reaction to the events in Jerusalem.
