Police say 10 arrested so far for disorder ahead of Jerusalem Day Flag March
Police say that so far 10 people have been arrested for disorder as thousands gather in the capital for the annual Jerusalem Day Flag March.
Some of those arrested include left-wing activists who blocked a highway heading to Jerusalem, police say, adding that others were detained after “provocations” and clashes with Palestinians in the Old City.
Police forces in Jerusalem are being bolstered by Border Police officers and volunteers to ensure the safety of the highly contentious event.
