We hold the Israeli authorities responsible for the consequences of the so-called Flag March to be held on Sunday, May 29, Palestinian presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudaineh said in a communique.
By approving the march of the Israeli right-wing and the fundamentalist settlers, the occupation authorities are once again underestimating the determination of the Palestinian people and its leadership, he stressed.
Palestine Liberation Organization’s Jerusalem Department head Adnan al-Husayni warned on Wednesday that the Flag March is a powder keg that can spark a new outbreak in the region.
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. ef/iff/jf/rob
