Israeli border police prepare to fire tear gas during clashes with Palestinians in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Sur Baher following an event where a Palestinian man was killed by Israeli police after he tried to drive into a checkpoint near Sur Baher on April 7, 2009. The incident took place shortly after police demolished the house of Hussam Dwayyat, who went on a rampage in Jerusalem's busy Jaffa Street in June. Smashing vehicles and overturning a bus with his machinery, he killed three people and injured 45 others, before he was shot dead.
