Dozens of far-right activists, including two Knesset members, have held a rally outside the UN’s headquarters in Jerusalem, with one man being detained after trying to burn a Palestinian flag.

Clashes were reported at the scene as police prevented the demonstrators from igniting the flags.

Attending the rally were MKs Aryeh Eldad and Michael Ben Ari, currently of the National Union party. Both recently announced they would leave National Union to form the Power to Israel Party.

The detained man has been identified as the campaign director of Power to Israel, Benzi Gopstein.
