According to the Haaretz daily, the march is the first of a series to mark the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War organized by umbrella organization Standing Together which represents left-wing political parties and pro-peace groups. Israeli security forces have killed at least 241 Palestinians during that time. The rally went off peacefully the authorities said.

Israeli paramilitary police officers shot dead a Palestinian today after he stabbed three Israelis in Jerusalem's Old City, a police spokesman said.

Two American tourists and 37 Israelis have been killed in such incidents since the violence began. Another 200,000 Israelis live in East Jerusalem, an area claimed by Palestinians.

The Voice of Israel radio said the negotiations, which started in February under the auspices of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump's special envoy Jason Greenblatt, have not been fruitful, Efe news reported.

Since Washington holds the key to the problem, unless it takes a decisive position, conforms with worldwide legitimacy, against Israel's settlement activities and myriad other abuses, the latter will not stop its illegal acts.

While several condemnations to the Israeli decision had emerged from the UN, France and Germany on Friday - US officials had underestimated its threats.

Additionally, Jerusalem approved the further expansion of Israel's settlement construction despite President Trump's previous request that it suspend settlement activity.

"He condemns all unilateral actions that, like the present one, threaten peace and undermine the two-state solution", the spokesman added.
