The so-called Flag March is a powder keg and could spark a new outburst in the area, PLO’s Jerusalem Department head Adnan al-Husayni stressed.
The Government of that country is trying to export its internal crisis by allowing that the settlers pass through the streets of Jerusalem’s Old City, Al-Husayni denounced alluding the problems by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, whose ruling alliance was left in a parliamentary minority few days ago.
Al-Husayni condemned the ongoing violations, as well as the calls by the Israeli right wing to attack the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site for Muslims.
We hold Bennett directly responsible for “his extremist decisions and his colonial activities in Jerusalem,” he said.
Last week, the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs criticized the planned march as part of a strategy to try to Judaize that area of the city.
The Flag March is a nationalist celebration of incitement and setting the area on fire, the march of thousands of right-wing activists instigated in the streets of East Jerusalem is a finger in the eye of the entire Palestinian people, MP Aida Touma-Sliman said.
