New Israeli gov’t approves right-wing march through Jerusalem
Al Jazeera, 15 Jun 2021
Israel's new government has approved a controversial march by far-right nationalists, a day after Naftali Bennett became prime minister.
The groups plan to walk through occupied East Jerusalem's Old City on Tuesday, which risks re-igniting tensions.
Palestinians view the march as a provocation and some factions have called for a "day of rage" in response.
The march has been twice delayed, first in May because of rockets fired from Gaza and then again last Thursday when Jerusalem police withdrew permission, citing security concerns.
