There are disagreements between the Gaza-ruling Hamas terror group and other factions in the Strip regarding a response to tomorrow’s controversial flag march in Jerusalem, Channel 12 news reports.

According to the network, citing Palestinian sources, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and other smaller factions seek to launch rockets at Israel tomorrow during Jerusalem Day.

But Hamas is against launching rockets in response to the march, the sources say.

Israeli officials cited by the Kan public broadcaster say they do not expect Hamas to escalate the situation, but are preparing for the possibility of rocket fire regardless.
