Israel launches air strikes on besieged Gaza

Meanwhile, Palestinians in Gaza launched balloon-borne incendiary devices at Israel throughout the day, with the fire services reporting that they arson attacks sparked at least 26 blazes in the south.

The strikes were the first under the new coalition government headed by Naftali Bennett, who took over on Sunday after ousting former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Instead, the route went around the ancient walls of the Old City and through Jaffa Gate, a main thoroughfare for tourists, and toward the Jewish Quarter and Western Wall, the holiest site where Jews can pray.

Some chanted "Death to Arabs" before others quieted them.

Medics said 33 Palestinians were wounded and police said two officers were injured and 17 people were arrested. But police changed the route on Tuesday to avoid the area. While it was diverted from the Damascus Gate at the last minute, it was seen by Palestinians as an unwelcome celebration of Israeli control over what they view as their capital.

Hamas, which governs Gaza, had threatened to take military action in response to a controversial flag march organised by Israeli far-right settlers in occupied East Jerusalem.

The so-called March of the Flags celebrates the anniversary of the city's "reunification" after Israel captured east Jerusalem from Jordan in 1967 and annexed it, a move not recognized by most of the worldwide community.

Since the fighting ended, Hamas has repeatedly warned that it could reopen hostilities over developments in Jerusalem, and has responded with increased belligerence to plans for the march.

It urged people to gather in the Old City and at the Al-Aqsa Mosque to "rise up in the face of the occupier and resist it by all means to stop its crimes and arrogance". The conflict between the two sides between May 10 to 21 had led to the deaths of at least 260 Palestinians.

Abu Malek, one of the young men launching the balloons, called the move "an initial response" to the march.

Prior to Tuesday's march, Israel beefed up its deployment of the Iron Dome anti-missile system in anticipation of possible rocket attacks from Gaza.

After the march, Defense Minister Benny Gantz met with Shin Bet chief Nadav Argaman and IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi for an assessment of the situation, his office said.

United Nations deputy spokesperson Farhan Haq said United Nations officials have urged all sides to avoid "provocations" in order to solidify the informal cease-fire that halted the Gaza war.

Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh, of the internationally backed Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, called the march an "aggression against our people".
