Dozens injured, 20 arrested in Al-Quds as 'Flag March' continues
After the launching of the provocative Israeli "Flag March", the Israeli occupation forces attack Palestinians in occupied Al-Quds.
On Sunday, 24 Palestinian civilians were injured in attacks by the Israeli occupation forces and settlers in occupied Al-Quds, coinciding with the launch of the Israeli "Flag March".
The Palestinian Red Cross in occupied Al-Quds reported that its crews treated 24 injuries from rubber-coated metal bullets, beatings, and pepper gas spraying in the vicinity and inside the Old City.
The organization added that the Israeli occupation police beat their crew members in the vicinity of Bab Al-Amoud, while they were trying to reach one of the casualties, noting that they opened a field hospital in the ambulance center in Al-Sawwana neighborhood to treat the injuries.
Local sources reported that dozens of Palestinians marched with Palestinian flags on Salah El-Din street in occupied Al-Quds in response to the "Flag March" in occupied Al-Quds.
The occupation forces installed iron barracks in Bab Al-Amoud area this afternoon, deployed their forces in the neighborhoods of the occupied city of Al-Quds, and emptied the area around Bab Al-Amoud from the presence of Palestinians to secure the provocative march.
20 civilians have been arrested so far in the vicinity of Bab Al-Amoud and in the neighborhoods of the Old City and Al-Aqsa Mosque.
In the meantime, as Israeli settlers were raising the Israeli flag and burning the Palestinian one, a drone flying the Palestinian flag occupied the skies of occupied Al-Quds in defiance of the Israeli provocative march.

Israeli Channel 13 reported on a state of alert in the Gaza Envelope settlements ahead of the "Flag March", and a number of settlers headed to emergency shelters.
The channel indicated that there is fear within the security and military establishment, prior to the March, regarding violent confrontations and attempts to carry out operations and launch rockets from the Gaza Strip.
