Palestinians fight to save Jerusalem cemetery from being destroyed for Israeli park

Israeli forces fired tear gas and sound bombs at Palestinians outside the al-Yusufiyah cemetery in occupied East Jerusalem on Friday, the latest escalation at the site, as Palestinians fight to save the cemetery from being destroyed to make way for an Israeli park.

According to local reports, groups of Palestinians gathered outside the cemetery, located right outside the walls of the Old City, to protest the construction of an Israeli park in the area, which threatens the destruction of several Palestinian grave sites.

Videos from the scene on Friday showed armed Israeli border police officers throwing tear gas and sound bombs at the crowds, while others officers violently detained young Palestinian man, and lifted their batons up in a threatening manner at people who were filming at the scene.
