Palestinians clash with Israeli forces in Jerusalem

Palestinian protesters have clashed with Israeli security forces in Jerusalem as tensions flared over the situation in Gaza.

Some of the Palestinians threw fireworks and rocks at the Israeli troops, who were present in large numbers in the east of the city.

Footage shows Israel forces approaching the protesters, with undercover police arresting one man, while another is blindfolded and led away by troops.

Large numbers of Israeli security personnel then stood guard as Palestinians took part in outdoor prayers to mark the final stage of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
