Israel Commemorates Reunification of Jerusalem

Sunday marks Jerusalem Day in Israel which commemorates the reunification of Jerusalem under Israeli rule following the Six-Day War in 1967. From 1948 until 1967, the city was divided, with the Old City under Jordanian control and access to Christian and Jewish holy sites restricted.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

• The White House sends its congratulations to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as his new coalition government is confirmed.
• Israel purchases new naval ships from Germany as the two countries honor 50 years of diplomatic ties.
• U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry meets with Russia’s President Putin to discuss apparent ceasefire violations in Ukraine.
