Israeli politicians vow to organize “flags march” in Jerusalem despite police refusal

Right-wing activists in Israel said that the police did not agree to hold a flag march, which he had called, in Palestinian neighborhoods in East Jerusalem.

The head of the Religious Zionism party, Knesset member, Bezal Smotrich, pledged to go ahead with the march without official permission.

Representative Itamar Ben Gvir, from the same party, made it clear that he would not accept this decision, and that he would conduct this march.

Hamas had threatened to re-escalate and repeat the scenario of the past two months, if the march approached Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The East Jerusalem region has witnessed continuous tensions for two months against the backdrop of the threat to expel Palestinian families from their homes in favor of settlement associations. The protests expanded to different parts of Jerusalem, especially in Al-Aqsa Mosque during the month of Ramadan.

The case led to a bloody escalation with the Gaza Strip that lasted for 11 days, killing 260 Palestinians, including 66 children, and causing massive destruction in the Strip. On the Israeli side, 12 people were killed, including a child, a girl and a soldier.

An Israeli court last month postponed a hearing in the case, the date of which has not yet been set.

Jewish property-claiming associations are currently seeking to evict the homes of 58 other Palestinians, according to Peace Now. Palestinians say that the threat of eviction generally threatens about 500 Palestinians.
