A pro-settlement organisation held an annual march around the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem on Saturday, on the occasion of the 'Ninth of Av' fast day. Dozens of marchers gathered around the walls of the Old City, under the presence of a number of Israeli officials who reportedly performed religious rites. On Tuesday, the Palestinian Authority issued a statement calling for the... Еще prohibition of the march. They deemed it a provocation aiming to «exercise sovereignty over Jerusalem and unite the city as the capital of Israel.» «This march is a continuation of the radical policy prevailing in the political arena in Israel and among the settlers,» the statement said. The 'Ninth of Av' fast day commemorates an alleged destruction in ancient times of Jewish temples of Temple Mount.
