Despite Sunday’s Jerusalem Day flag march and the accompanying violent incidents that took place in Jerusalem, the Palestinians succeeded in proving that they are the sovereign party in the city, Palestinian Authority Governor of Jerusalem Adnan Gheith said on Sunday evening. Gheith, who was speaking to the Al Jazeera TV network, said the Palestinian people “have proven today that sovereignty in Jerusalem is Palestinian sovereignty despite all the practices of the occupation and the racist settlers.” He accused Israel of trying to drag the region into a religious war and “Judaize” Jerusalem.

“We are facing a right-wing extremist government, ethnic cleansing and forced displacement in our occupied capital,” Gheith added. Palestinian sources said that at least 60 people were injured and 38 arrested during clashes with Israeli security forces and Israelis celebrating Jerusalem Day by marching through Damascus Gate and the Muslim Quarter.
