East Jerusalem: Israelis, Palestinians face off during Jerusalem Day celebrations

Israelis engaged in scuffles with Palestinian protesters as they celebrated Jerusalem Day in East Jerusalem's Old City on Sunday. Police intervened to avoid escalation, with images showing them pushing a Palestinian woman over. Hertzel, one of the Israelis, stated: «I came to prove to the Israelis that we love both war and peace, whoever wants war with us, they are welcome, we are not afraid... Еще from war.» Micky Rosenfeld, the National Spokesman of the Israeli Police to Foreign Media, said security measures were ramped up to accommodate the 30,000 people taking part in the celebrations, and that the measures «will continue tomorrow morning as well for the opening of the American Embassy.» Jerusalem Day commemorates the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City following the 1967's Six Day War.
