A group of ultra-Orthodox Jews hurled stones at Palestinian homes in the Shuafat refugee camp of annexed east Jerusalem on Saturday, injuring one person, police said.
"About 20 Jews of the ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Ramat Shlomo, which adjoins Shuafat, threw stones at Palestinian homes, slightly injuring the head of a resident of the camp," police spokeswoman Luba Samri told Agence France Presse.
Three stonethrowers were arrested, she added.
"The Palestinians threw stones back in retaliation and slightly injured two Jews," Samri said.
Some 300,000 Palestinians with the special status of "Jerusalem residents" live in east Jerusalem, captured by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War. Tensions abound with the 500,000 Israelis who live in the city, mostly in the west.
