Left-wing Israeli activists joined Palestinian activists in raising the Palestinian flag in a demonstration organized Friday in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of Jerusalem. Anadolu Agency reported.
The Israeli and Palestinian activists defied the directives of Israel’s National Security Minister, Itamar Ben-Gvir, on Sunday.
For years, Israeli and Palestinian activists have organized Friday demonstrations to protest the eviction of Palestinian homes in Sheikh Jarrah to replace them with Israeli settlers.
