Riot preparation

It’s a very tense week here in the Jerusalem area. Isawiyya, especially, has been very ‘active.’ This is what a “set-up” of a riot looks like; dumpsters are used as barricades and large rocks are scattered all over the road to slow down vehicles. Shortly afterwards, stones are exchanged with smoke bombs, stun grenades and ‘skunk water.’ Fortunately, real bullets are not used very often.
