Protesters have clashed with Israeli police in Jerusalem throughout the night, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Clashes between Israeli police forces and Palestinian protesters left more than 100 injured overnight in Jerusalem, according to medical and police sources.

According to the police, the demonstration was declared unlawful; its participants were asked to disperse.
