PLO Flag at Public School in Jerusalem's Old City

The flag of the Palestine Liberation Organization, the parent of the Palestinian Authority, has been flying for two weeks over a municipal junior high school for Arab girls near the Flower Gate (Sha'ar Haperahim) of Jerusalem's Old City, according to a Friday-morning report by the Yediot Aharonot daily. Jewish residents say they have complained to city hall a number of times but nothing has been done.

The municipality said the principal of the school complained last week and the flag was removed the same day with the help of police. The city said it was monitoring the situation to make sure the flag does not fly again.
