Flags March, Jerusalem (news)

Israeli flag-waving settlers entered Jerusalem's Old City amid high tensions. The Jerusalem Day march, celebrating Israel's capture of East Jerusalem in the 1967 war, has historically been controversial. Two years ago, it resulted in a rocket attack by Hamas, a Palestinian militant group, which in turn ignited an 11-day conflict between Israel and Gaza militants.

Some marchers chanted anti-Palestinian slogans during the event, including "May your village burn".
