Israeli and international activists block a road near the Gilo settlement in the West Bank to stop Israeli settlers from arriving in Jerusalem to attend the annual “Flag March” on May 18th. The march, which celebrates the occupation and colonization of Jerusalem, regularly involves settler violence against the city’s Palestinian residents. Israeli police arrested ten of the activists seeking to prevent the march and forcibly removed the group blocking the road.
