Police brass said set to meet Sunday to decide on charged Jerusalem march plan

Police chiefs are set to hold a meeting tomorrow to decide whether to approve a controversial right-wing march through Jerusalem’s Old City that could reignite violence between Arabs and Jews in the capital and beyond, Channel 12 reports.

The network says the parade — which was canceled mid-march last month as Hamas fired rockets at Jerusalem — is likely to be approved, but possibly with changes to its route. It says one such change could be a refusal to allow participants to pass through the volatile Damascus Gate area.

According to the report, police officials believe canceling the march will lead to appeals to the High Court of Justice and that judges will likely allow it to go forward.
