Violence in Shuafat refugee camp — a Palestinian refugee camp on the edge of Jerusalem — erupted in violence on Monday after Israeli police carried out a raid to arrest tax evaders and Palestinians.

Eleven people were arrested for involvement in the unrest, which included throwing stones, or for the non-payment of municipal taxes and other bills.

The violence in Shuafat refugee camp occurred within the expanded Jerusalem borders which Israel declared after capturing its eastern sector in a 1967 war.

Four officers were slightly hurt. Ten Palestinians were injured, none seriously.

Israel regards all of Jerusalem as its “indivisible and eternal capital,” is not recognized internationally.
