Israeli Occupation cancels 'Flags March' in Occupied Jerusalem

Monday, the Israeli Occupation police announced that it will not authorize a bid by organizers to march through Occupied East Jerusalem due to security concerns, prompting the organizers to cancel the march.

Earlier Monday, Hamas warned of a new confrontation if the settlers' march nears Occupied Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque on Thursday.

Thursday is the Israeli Occupation's annual Flag March which passes through Damascus Gate in the Old City of Occupied Jerusalem.

A senior Hamas figure Khalil al-Hayya said “We warn the [Israeli] Occupation against letting the march approach east Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque compound on Thursday.”

“We hope the message is clear so that Thursday doesn’t become a new May 10,” he said.
