Itamar Ben Gvir, a member of the Israeli Knesset from the extreme right, arrived at the Damascus Gate in occupied Jerusalem in a provocative manner, after the Inspector General of Police prevented him from organizing a mini-flags march on Thursday.
The Israeli police had issued a decision to prevent Ben Gvir from storming Al-Aqsa and carrying out the flags march, claiming that this would lead to a breach of public order and prejudice the security of the state.
Bin Ghafir accused the Commander-in-Chief of the Police of violating his parliamentary immunity after he was prevented from marching in flags.
The Israeli Supreme Court rejected a petition submitted by Ben Gvir, against the decision of the Inspector General of Police to prevent him from organizing the march and storming the courtyards of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The court justified its refusal due to lack of time, and Ben Gvir intended to hold the march in protest against the postponement of the flag marches that were scheduled to be attended by tens of thousands of Israelis in the Old City.
Ben Gvir said that his ban is a violation of what he called democratic foundations, and the essence of his parliamentary immunity, and accused the Inspector General of Police of failing to fulfill his duty to control the protests of the Palestinians in Jerusalem, Lydda and Jaffa.
Meanwhile, the Israeli police arrested a Palestinian at Bab al-Amud who tried to confront the extremist Knesset member, and Palestinians flocked to Al-Aqsa to prevent him from storming it.
