Participants in a Palestinian wedding procession which took place in Jerusalem’s Old City on Thursday with police authorization displayed the flags of Hezbollah, Hamas and al-Qaeda alongside those of Palestine, Walla news reported.
According to the report the crowd also chanted anti-Israeli slogans as it passed through the streets.
Local resident Sarit Applebaum told the news website that such incidents were becoming increasingly common.
“Every few days there is a procession of some kind, which is usually followed by rock-throwing at our homes,” she said. Applebaum added that such rallies prevented Jewish residents from leaving their homes for long hours due to safety concerns.
“Sometimes we simply cannot return home and have to remain outside,” she said.
Jerusalem’s Old City has recently become a hotspot of Israeli-Palestinian clashes, with riots often occurring in or around the Temple Mount as Palestinians protest Israelis visiting the compound, which houses the al-Aqsa mosque.
Last week Jordan’s foreign ministry summoned Israeli ambassador Daniel Nevo to protest Israel’s actions in the Temple Mount. Jordanian officials protested what they called a “gross breach of international law and of the peace agreement between the two nations.”
They accused Israel of allowing extremist Israeli Jews to enter the compound and of attacking Muslim worshipers at the al-Aqsa mosque.
