Israel has warned Gaza’s Hamas rulers that a nationalistic march in the Old City on Jerusalem Day will go forward as planned even at the risk of a security escalation, Channel 12 news reports.

According to the report, Israel also warned Hamas against firing rockets during the Flag March on Sunday in a message relayed by mediators.

The network also cites a senior police source insisting there is no reason to change the parade’s route, “even if there is rocket fire.”

“We don’t need to worry about marching within Israel,” the unnamed source says.
