Senior Hamas official Salah al-Bardawil issues a fresh threat against Israel holding the Jerusalem Day Flag March.
“The Zionist flag march will not pass, and the response will inevitably come,” says al-Bardawil.
The controversial nationalist parade through the Old City of Jerusalem is set for tomorrow, when tens of thousands of Jewish Israelis are expected to march through the Muslim Quarter waving Israeli flags.
The event will come less than a week after Israel and terror group Palestinian Islamic Jihad finalized a ceasefire agreement following five days of deadly conflict.
Security officials believe the chances for rocket fire from Gaza during the march to be slim. But some officials have feared a repeat of 2021, when Hamas fired rockets at Jerusalem just as the march was starting, sparking over a week of fighting between Israel and Gazan terror groups.
