A Palestinian man is arrested by Israeli security officers following a protest against Israelis celebrating Jerusalem Day on May 8, 2013 at the Damascus gate in Jerusalem's Old City. Jerusalem day marks the anniversary of the reunification of the holy city. Thousands of Israelis joined marches and rallies throughout the city, including a "flag march" that passed through Damascus Gate on its way to the Western Wall. Police, who were deployed in their thousands, arrested 13 people including two "Arab youths" suspected of throwing water at Jews participating in the flag dance near Damascus Gate, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement.
