Palestinian factions, youth organisations and national figures have called on Palestinians to march towards Jerusalem today and actively participate in the events of the Million Man March to Jerusalem.

The Palestinian youth movement called upon the masses in the besieged Gaza Strip, the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem, and within Israel to devote the last Friday of Ramadan to going out to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem and participating in events in the West Bank cities and on the borders of the Gaza Strip and Jerusalem.

Catholic Priest Manuel Musallam called for broad Palestinian unity during the march.
