Israel: Jerusalem residents march against US embassy move

Hundreds of people marched through the streets of Jerusalem on Saturday, to demonstrate against the planned move of the US embassy to the city. Protesters also condemned the Jerusalem Day Flag March, scheduled for Sunday, commemorating the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City. Protesters marched from King George Street to the Old City's Jaffa Gate, chanting «Netanyahu resign... Еще. Peace is worth more than you.» One of the protesters said, «I came today because I firmly believe Jerusalem belongs to everybody.» Jerusalem Day comes two days before the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, which means the 'Catastrophe' in Arabic and refers to the 1948 Palestinian exodus, where an estimated 700,000 Palestinians were expelled to make way for the new state of Israel.
