Some 1,000 activists took part in a march in support of Palestinian statehood through the streets of Jerusalem on Friday.

The march, organized by the Sheikh Jarrah Solidarity movement, was touted by the group as a large, joint Jewish-Arab demonstration in support of a Palestinian state and the current effort for United Nations recognition of that state.

The march began at Jerusalem's Jaffa Gate in the Old City and was scheduled to end with a rally including speeches in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah.
