Palestinians, Israeli security forces clash as east Jerusalem simmers over march

The air raid marks the first hostility between Israel and Gaza militants since a * a href="https://newswire.storyful.com/storylines/*/stories/254540?search_term=ceasefire" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:ceasefire" class="link rapid-noclick-resp" *ceasefire came into effect on May 21, ending an 11-day conflict that left 257 Palestinians and 12 Israelis dead.

Hamas had called on Palestinians to show "valiant resistance" to the march.

The Israeli military struck targets in Gaza overnight Wednesday, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said in a statement, citing incendiary balloons launched from Gaza earlier in the day.

The US and United Nations had called for restraint before the march, which the government of new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett had authorised.

Earlier on Tuesday, a Palestinian was injured by Israeli gunfire near the Gaza border fence.

For the past three years, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, mostly linked to Hamas and other terror groups, have launched thousands of balloon-borne incendiary and explosive devices into southern Israel, causing widespread fires and significant damage to agricultural fields, nature reserves, and private property.

The Israeli military has made preparations for a possible escalation in Gaza over the march, Israeli media reported, and the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem prohibited its employees and their families from entering the Old City on Tuesday.

It followed a march by Jewish nationalists in occupied East Jerusalem on Tuesday, which had drawn threats from Hamas, the militant group that runs Gaza.

Israel's annexation of east Jerusalem since the Six-Day War of 1967 is not recognised by most of the global community which says the city's final status should be a matter of negotiation between the two sides.

The number of active COVID-19 cases being reported in Saskatchewan has fallen below 900 for the first time since early November. Five cases tested out of province have been added: in the far north east (4), with one more pending resident information.

At the last minute, that march was diverted away from the Damascus Gate and the Old City's Muslim Quarter, but the move was not enough to dissuade Hamas from firing rockets toward Jerusalem, attacks that set off last month's round of fighting.

From the Damascus Gate, they proceeded around the Old City to the Western Wall, the holiest place where Jews can pray.

Police said 17 people were arrested for disturbing the peace including throwing stones and assaulting police, with two officers needing medical attention.

Tuesday's march, due to begin at 6:30 p.m. (1530 GMT), poses an immediate challenge for new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, who took office on Sunday and brought veteran leader Benjamin Netanyahu's record-long rule to an end.

Mr Abbas said the police and public security minister should have canceled the event.

Bennett's internal security minister approved the march on Monday. Ben Gvir waved an Israeli flag at the site, in what he said was a personal protest after police banned him from parading through the Muslim Quarter to reach the Temple Mount.

"We warn the occupation (Israel) against letting the march approach east Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque compound", Hayya said.

Israeli strikes on the Gaza Strip killed 260 Palestinians including some fighters, the Gaza authorities said.
