In Jerusalem on Sunday, warnings for Jewish nationalists

(ANSAmed) – TEL AVIV, MAY 25 – The Jerusalem police will be placed on maximum alert on Sunday on the occasion of the ‘March of flags’ organized by Jewish nationalists on the anniversary, marked by the Jewish lunar calendar, of the unification of the two sectors of the city with the 1967 Six Day War. At least 3,000 agents will be charged with protecting public order, after Hamas and other Palestinian factions have threatened that they will try to prevent it at all costs. The site Ynet writes that according to the police there is also the danger that Hamas could launch rockets towards Jerusalem from Gaza, as happened a year ago in the same circumstance.

In a meeting with the press, the police announced that the number of participants in the march will be limited to 16,000: half will be allowed to pass through the Damascus gate of the Old City, and thus cross the Islamic district, while the other half will pass through the Jaffa gate, thus passing through the Christian sector. Groups of participants will also be admitted on the Temple Mount, which for Jews is the Temple Mount. Yesterday the Palestinian factions warned that they will be mobilized “to defend the al-Aqsa mosque”.
