Thousands of Israeli Jews marched to the Wailing Wall last night changing racist slogans at Palestinians along the way.

They marked from Bab Al-Jadeed, the New Gate, through the occupied Old City, to the Wailing Wall carrying Israeli flags to mark the two-day Jewish religious day of Tisha B’Av.

The sources added that several settlers acted provocatively against Palestinian citizens and chanted racist slurs in the holy city during their march under police guard.

Earlier, the Israeli police made security preparations ahead of the march, intensifying its forces’ presence in different streets of Jerusalem, especially in the Old City, and restricting the movement of Palestinians.
