FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “New Israel govt faces early test with far-right march” – below is their description.
Israel’s fledgling new government faced an early test Tuesday as #Jewish #ultranationalists prepared to #march into annexed east #Jerusalem, stoking tensions the UN has warned threaten a fragile #Gaza ceasefire. The so-called #MarchoftheFlags, which celebrates the #anniversary of Israel’s 1967 #occupation of the city’s eastern sector, was originally scheduled for last Thursday but was delayed due to Israeli police opposition to the route and warnings from Gaza’s Islamist rulers #Hamas. The former government of veteran premier Benjamin #Netanyahu put off the march until Tuesday, a decision confirmed late Monday by the incoming government of Prime Minister Naftali #Bennett.
