Five people were arrested on suspicion of disturbing the peace during a far-right protest near the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City, police said Thursday evening.
Dozens gathered to protest the decision to postpone a march from there to the Temple Mount for fear that it could spark violence between Jews and Palestinians in the city.
Religious Zionist party MK Itamar Ben-Gvir joined the protesters, slamming the police for "capitulating to terrorists" and saying he "won't give up."
