Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, on the eve of Jerusalem Day, said, Jerusalem will never be divided.
He remarks also marked the day when Israel captured east Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war.
The rocks and archaeological artifacts found in Jerusalem expose the deep ties between the Jewish people and its capital, Netanyahu said.
Jerusalem Day is marked on Wednesday to commemorate the anniversary of Israel's capture of the eastern part of the city during the 1967 Middle East war. Israel annexed East Jerusalem as part of its capital, in a move that was not recognized internationally.
