On Jerusalem Day, Israel PM vows not to divide city

Israeli security forces keep watch at the Dome of the Rock in the al-Aqsa mosque compound in East Jerusalem on May 26, 2014Police closed the flashpoint Al-Aqsa compound to visitors Wednesday as Israel marked Jerusalem Day and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged to never allow the city to be divided. The annual celebration recalls the Israeli army’s seizure of the walled Old City in what was then Jordanian-held east Jerusalem on the third day of the 1967 Six-Day War. Israel later annexed the entire eastern sector, in a move which has never been recognised by the international community. “Forty-seven years ago, Jerusalem was unified, and it will never be divided again,” Netanyahu said at a special cabinet meeting to mark the day, repeating remarks made at an earlier parliamentary session.
