Violent tensions in Jerusalem
The Israeli security system has cautioned Israeli politicians against allowing Jews to participate in "Jerusalem Day" events or the annual flag march in Jerusalem's Old City.
The Israeli security system has warned the Israeli political leadership against allowing settlers to hold the annual media rallies, according to the Hebrew newspaper "Haaretz" published today, Sunday.
According to the newspaper, sources in Israel's security system have stated that allowing Jews to access the Al-Aqsa Mosque would raise tensions in Jerusalem, potentially worsening the situation in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
According to the Haaretz newspaper, Israeli police announced yesterday that settlers will be allowed to march in the Old City of Jerusalem tomorrow and that the Damascus Gate road will be closed to Muslims until 7:30 p.m.
