JERUSALEM, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- Jewish and Arab women rallied in Jerusalem on Wednesday to mark the International Day of Peace and call for a peace agreement between Israel and Palestine.

"We marched in Jerusalem, demanding the advancement of an agreement," Women Wage Peace, an Israeli peace group composed of Jewish and Arab women that organized the event, said in a statement.

The women created a human chain around the walls of East Jerusalem's Old City near the Jaffa Gate and chanted songs for peace.

Women Wage Peace was formed by Jewish and Arab women in 2014 aimed for peace between Israel and Palestine and for women's involvement in the negotiations.

The last round of peace talks between the two sides failed in 2014.
