Israeli far-right groups march through occupied East Jerusalem

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Israeli far-right groups march through occupied East Jerusalem” – below is their description.

Israeli far-right nationalists took part in a flag-waving march through occupied East Jerusalem on Tuesday that risks reigniting tensions with Palestinians and poses an early challenge for Israel’s new government.

At least 17 Palestinians were arrested by Israeli forces, and dozens more were assaulted and forcibly removed from the Damascus Gate plaza leading to the Old City.

Metal barriers were set up by Israeli police on the roads leading to Damascus Gate, which was sealed off to prevent the entry of Palestinians.

The so-called March of the Flags celebrates the anniversary of Israel’s 1967 occupation of the city’s eastern part.

Al Jazeera’s Stefanie Dekker reports from occupied East Jerusalem, Palestine.
