It adds to the already high tensions between Palestine and Israel.
Now, a barrier has been constructed separating Jewish and Arab neighborhoods in East Jerusalem.
"They are checking us; we don’t feel free at all,” explained Mousa Omar, a Palestinian from Isawiyyah. “And we don’t feel safe either. We can’t go anywhere and they ask us where we go and when we come back. They are putting more pressure on us. I work in a supermarket. I am going to work. Now I have to leave an hour before my work starts to be on time. I feel humiliated being checked this way. I can’t see any end of this situation. It’s a war against all Palestinian people in Jerusalem."
Secretary of State John Kerry is set to meet with Israeli and Palestinian leaders on the recent violence in the coming days.
