Gantz indicates he’ll demand cancelation of flag parade

Defense Minister Gantz says he will demand the explosive flag parade through Jerusalem’s Old City not take place this week if it “demands extraordinary security measures and endangers public order and diplomatic processes.”

He puts out the statement following a meeting with the military and police chiefs, the attorney general, and other top security officials.

Gantz says he stressed to all officials present the need for responsible, sensitive behavior this week.
