Hundreds of Palestinians clash with Israeli forces in West Bank, Gaza

Hundreds of Palestinian protesters are clashing with Israeli security forces in the West Bank cities of Hebron, Bethlehem and Ramallah after Friday midday prayers in a show of rage over the Trump administration’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Protesters threw stones at Israeli troops who are responding with tear gas and rubber bullets.

In Gaza, thousands take to the streets and march to denounce US President Donald Trump’s proclamation.

Over a dozen Palestinians are injured by tear gas and rubber bullets, the Palestinian Red Crescent says.

Thousands of Palestinian worshippers also are rallying outside Jerusalem’s Al Aqsa Mosque, a sensitive holy site in the city.
