Over 3,000 security forces surrounded the Holy City on Wednesday as Israelis commemorated Jerusalem Day.
The event marks the unification of Jerusalem following the capture of the Arab eastern zone which occurred 44 years ago during the Six Day War in 1967.
The march commenced from Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem. This area has recently turned hostile due to growing Jewish settlements, which Palestinians strongly oppose.
Israel claims the entire city as an indivisible capital, but Palestinians wants the east as the capital of their promised state.
