Israel to permit right wing march

Israeli officials said on Tuesday that they will allow a far-right march through Jerusalem's Old City to go ahead, a day after scrapping the event over fears it would rekindle fighting between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza.

Several right-wing Israeli groups had planned a flag-waving procession through the walled Old City's Damascus Gate and into its Muslim quarter this Thursday, drawing warnings from Gaza's rulers Hamas of renewed hostilities should it proceed.

The original march on May 10 was re-routed at the last minute as tensions in Jerusalem led Hamas to fire rockets towards the holy city. Israel responded with air strikes, and the most serious cross-border fighting with Hamas in years raged for 11 days before a fragile ceasefire was reached.
