At least two Palestinians have been killed and hundreds injured as Day of Rage protests continue across the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip over the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Al Jazeera reported.
The Red Crescent also said on Friday that so far, they had attended to at least 767 injuries in the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza Strip.
Israeli forces fired tear gas and rubber bullets at demonstrators in the occupied West Bank cities of Hebron and Bethlehem, with at least one case of live ammunition being reported, Palestinian medical services said.
Friday marked the third day of protests across the occupied territories.
Palestinian universities, schools, and educational institutions had also declared a strike after a directive from the Palestinian Ministry of Education.
As we reported earlier, President Donald Trump’s decision to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel and begin moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv drew withering criticism at an emergency meeting of the 15-member United Nations Security Council in New York.
