With Independence Day just around the corner, Israelis across the country are wont to hang replicas of the national flag on their car windows and balconies.
Yet for those patriotic residents in mixed Jewish-Arab cities, the phenomenon can cause tension in light of the never-ending nationalist conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.
An illustration of this was captured by a security camera placed in a residential area of the Jerusalem neighborhood of Abu Tor. In the video clip, a young Palestinian boy is seen tearing a small Israeli flag away from the window of a parked car nearby.
The footage was acquired and disseminated by the Tazpit News Agency.
