Former Military Intelligence chief Tamir Hayman tells Channel 12 news he “understands the decision” to allow the Jerusalem Day flag march to take place tomorrow.

Last year, the Hamas terror group launched rockets at Jerusalem amid the parade, sparking an 11-day war.

Hayman says the situation today is different from a year ago, when tensions were higher following canceled Palestinian elections and near-nightly clashes at Damascus Gate and in Sheikh Jarrah.

He says Hamas has no interest in escalating the situation inside Gaza now, but would “be very satisfied if there is some uprising,” especially on the Temple Mount.
