Palestinian incitement surged in the wake of Sunday’s ramming attack in Jerusalem, with social media praising the attack and terror sympathizers warning it was “just the beginning.”

Posts on the “Mukaber Net” Facebook page, affiliated with the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, where Fadi al-Qanbar, the truck driver who carried out the attack, resided, praised the attack and expressed hope others would follow in his footsteps.

A statement featured on the video said, “The factions of the resistance welcome this act, which followed statements by Israeli defense sources saying that Jerusalem is safe.”

In Jabel Mukaber, the Jerusalem District Police arrested several youth for scrawling graffiti praising the attack.

Four residents of the Muslim Quarter in Jerusalem were also arrested Tuesday on suspicion of incitement after graffiti, scrawled in Arabic and Hebrew and threatening “Sunday’s attack is just the beginning,” was found in four locations in the Muslim Quarter.

The suspects, ages 13 to 20, have implicated themselves in the case, and spray-paint cans were found during a search of their homes, a police source said.

On Tuesday evening, Jabel Mukaber youth hurled rocks at police forces deployed in the volatile neighborhood. Three minors, ages 12 to 14, were detained for questioning.

A police source told Israel Hayom the unrest in Jabel Mukaber again illustrated the disturbing, increased in the involvement of minors and children in riots — events that may turn violent and place these minors’ lives at risk.

The police urged local leadership to act responsibly and prevent the involvement of minors in riots.
