Hundreds of worshipers attend morning prayers at the Western Wall to mark Jerusalem Day.

The prayers pass without major incident.

Jerusalem Day, which marks Israel’s conquest of the Old City and East Jerusalem from Jordan in the 1967 Six Day War, is celebrated mainly by national-religious Jews.

Most prominently, youths march through the Old City for the contentious Flag March.
