Extremely-nationalist Jewish crowds have marched thru Jerusalem’s Outdated Town to rejoice Israel’s unlawful career of East Jerusalem, chanting slogans similar to “Demise to Arabs”.
Hundreds of marchers who outnumbered Israeli safety forces deployed to keep an eye on the crowds, entered the Outdated Town.
The once a year so-called flag march got here after the far-right Israelis stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound – Islam’s 3rd holiest web site – in violation of the established order. Jewish prayers are prohibited on the compound, the place Jews consider the biblical temple as soon as stood.
Israel captured East Jerusalem, together with the Outdated Town, within the 1967 Mideast struggle and later annexed it in a transfer by no means recognised the world over.
The Palestinians, who search East Jerusalem because the capital of a long term state, worry the Israeli march and storming of Al-Aqsa is a plot to take over or divide the realm.
Israel denies such claims, announcing it stays dedicated to the established order.
Within the occupied Palestinian territory, folks protested towards the march, burning Israeli flags and in lots of circumstances resulting in confrontations between Palestinians and Israeli safety forces. Dozens of Palestinians were arrested and greater than 100 were injured.
