Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah warned Wednesday against letting the nationalistic Jerusalem Day flag March pass through the capital's Damascus Gate and the Muslim Quarter, and said that "our biggest fear is that the marchers will enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza and desecrate it."
Nasrallah further warned that the march "could lead to a major explosion" and described the marchers as "settlers, and in particular extremist religious."
"I want to tell the Israeli government and everyone involved - any damage to al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock will lead to an explosion in the area. This is provocation against all Arab and Islamic peoples."
