    0 21

    Trump's announcement has to massive protests by Palestinians in several cities across the disputed territories dubbed the "day of rage," with over 1,000 being injured in clashes.

    The Palestinians have continued to protest in Bethlehem and eastern Jerusalem against US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

    Trump's announcement has to massive protests by Palestinians in several cities across the disputed territories dubbed the "day of rage," with over 1,000 being injured in clashes. In addition, Hamas movement slammed Trump’s decision has called for an "intifada" against Israel.

    Most recently, 2 Palestinian fighters have reportedly been killed in Israeli airstrikes of the Gaza Strip, targeting four Hamas facilities, including two arms manufacturing sites, a weapons warehouse and a military compound.

    Israel seized Jerusalem from Jordan during the Six Day War in 1967. The international community does not recognize the annexation of East Jerusalem and believes its status should be determined by a pact with the Palestinians, who seek to create their own state with the capital in Jerusalem.
