Police said to approve Jerusalem flag march in principle

Israel Police approves in principle the Jerusalem flag parade scheduled for Thursday, Walla news reports.

The force will now present the recommendation to the political echelon, the report says.

The Flag March, a controversial annual parade, was rescheduled for Thursday, after it was canceled mid-event on May 10, Jerusalem Day, when Hamas fired rockets toward the city, setting off 11 days of fighting between Israel and Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip.

Defense Minister Benny Gantz signaled yesterday that he will demand the cancellation of the march, which is being backed by some of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s political allies. Netanyahu, who is facing the prospect of being replaced as premier if the so-called “change government” is sworn in, has yet to comment publicly on the matter.
