Thousands of settlers go on night march in Old City of Jerusalem

Settlers march to al-Buraq Wall

Thousands of Jewish settlers on Monday night marched to al-Buraq Wall (Wailing Wall) plaza, west of the Aqsa Mosque, performed rituals near the holy site and chanted racist slogans against the Palestinians.

Local sources told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) thousands of settlers marched from Bab al-Jadeed (New Gate) area in the Old City of Jerusalem to al-Buraq wall, carrying Israeli flags to mark the two-day Jewish occasion of Tisha B’Av.

The sources added that several settlers acted provocatively against Palestinian citizens and chanted racist slurs in the holy city during their march under police guard.

Temple Mount groups already called for massive participation in the march on Monday and incited their followers to desecrate the Aqsa Mosque compound en masse on Tuesday to commemorate the same occasion.

Earlier, the Israeli police made security preparations ahead of the march through intensifying its forces’ presence in different streets of Jerusalem, especially in the Old City, and restricting the movement of the Palestinian natives.
