A large group of settlers gathered at the Damascus Gate in occupied Jerusalem on Thursday afternoon and engaged in provocative dances as part of the Jewish Flag March, according to Roya’s correspondent.

The correspondent reported that Miri Regev, the Minister of Transport and Road Safety of Israeli Occupation, also participated in these provocative dances and raised the flag of the occupying entity.

The Israeli Occupation Forces heightened their military measures, evacuated alleys and closed shops, particularly in Al-Wad Street in the Old City of Jerusalem, impacting the local Jerusalemites and effectively transforming the city into a military base in preparation for the march.

Hundreds of police officers were deployed, and military checkpoints established on major roads while some main routes were completely closed.
