As large-scale Arab riots continue to rage in Jerusalem for the third day running on Friday, newly released video and photographic evidence shows just how destructive the violence has been.
Arab mobs threw rocks, Molotov cocktails and firebombs at police starting Wednesday, after an Arab youth was found murdered; claims of Jewish "revenge" for the murder of three Israel teens sparked violence, despite the total lack of evidence for such claims.
Video taken from inside an IDF vehicle traveling along the Light Rail lines in north-eastern Jerusalem shows just how extensive the damage has been, highlighting the three stations that were destroyed by the riots on Wednesday.
The wanton destruction is likely to have a long-term negative economic impact on the affected communities where the rioters themselves live.
Officials have assessed that the three destroyed Light Rail stations will likely take months to repair, in the meantime cutting off transportation to the Arab neighborhoods of Shuafat and Beit Hanina, where much of the rioting has been centered, among others.
The Jewish neighborhood of Pisgat Ze'ev to the north is likewise affected by the blow to transportation, although alternate means such as bus routes remain functional there.
Pictures from one of the destroyed stations with its torched ticket machines reveal Arab "price tag" vandalism, with the words "price tag" and "death to Israel, death to the Jews" scrawled in Hebrew on it in red paint. (There are those who claim past "price tag" vandalism was mostly staged by Arabs to incite against right-wing Jews.)

The poor oppressed Palestinians. If not for Israel it would be a Marxist paradise.
Pray America wakes up
Befouling their own nests, it’s what they do best.
Similar to many Black Americans in Democrat-Ruined Cities and townships.
Any excuse to destroy. A light rail station is just another Gaza greenhouse to them.
You know what they say about Karma.
The simple fact is that Israel works hard to minimize civilian "collateral damage." The palis target civilian populations on purpose!
They make that sound like a bad thing.
Instead of repairing the stations..they should level those "neighborhoods"...with ordinance.
