Israel marks 50 years of United Jerusalem

Location: Jerusalem, Israel
May 24, 2017

View of the Western Wall, the holiest site in Judaism, as tens of thousands of mainly right-wing Israelis flock to the holy site in the Old City of Jerusalem, 24 May 2017 during the annual Jerusalem Day march. At left is the distinctive golden Dome of the Rock on the Hareem al-Sharif (The Noble Sanctuary), on of Islam’s holiest sites.The march this year marks also the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Six Day War, which many Israelis feel was the ‘reunification’ of Jerusalem, putting it all under Israeli control. The Palestinians still consider their part of the city, East Jerusalem, to be ‘occupied.’
