Israeli police removed a Palestine Liberation Organization flag from a predominantly haredi neighborhood in Jerusalem Tuesday.

The PLO flag had been spotted in the Meah Sharim neighborhood of the capital.

According to a police spokesperson, the flag was taken down by officers operating in the area.

“In Jerusalem's Meah Sharim neighborhood, a Palestinian flag was removed after being hanged in the area.”

In the past, members of the radical anti-Zionist Neturei Karta movement have hung up or waved the PLO flag in or around the Meah Sharim neighborhood.
