Some 70,000 people marched through the Old City of Jerusalem as part of the Jerusalem Day flag march on Sunday afternoon, hours after a record 2,600 Israelis visited the Temple Mount compound on Sunday morning. Despite threats from Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and other groups in the Gaza Strip, no rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip despite scuffles that broke out between Israelis and Palestinians in the Old City throughout the day, with several lightly injured and close to two dozen arrested by Israel Police.

Video from the Damascus Gate showed groups of participants in the march chanting anti-Arab slogans including "Shuafat is on fire," "Death to Arabs," "Mohammed is dead" and "the village is burning." During the visits by Jews to the Temple Mount, Palestinian rioters threw chairs, rocks and fired fireworks toward security forces operating on the Temple Mount as well as towards the Mughrabi Bridge bringing Jewish worshipers to the site, Israel Police claimed.
