The provocative Israeli flag march stormed the Old City of occupied Jerusalem from Bab al-Amoud on Sunday night, with the participation of thousands of settlers, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.
During the march, Jewish settlers insulted the Prophet Mohammad and chanted racist and other slogans calling for the death of Arabs.
At least 24 Palestinians were injured in attacks by the Israeli occupation forces and settlers in the occupied city of Jerusalem during the provocative march.
