Police arrested 19 residents of East Jerusalem’s Arab neighborhoods on Saturday night and early Sunday morning for throwing rocks and rioting over the Jewish High Holidays, a police spokesperson said.

In the West Bank, the Israel Defense Forces and Border Police also arrested two Palestinians in separate overnight raids and confiscated money that was suspected of being “designated for terror activities,” the army said. The 19 people, including five minors, arrested in East Jerusalem were “suspected of taking part in riots that were carried out during the holidays, with an emphasis on the riots during Yom Kippur,” the police said.
