    "The number of injured in the Gaza Strip has increased to 100 people, 34 of them suffered injuries from bullets, they have been taken to hospitals, two [out of 100] are seriously injured, another 66, affected by gas, received assistance at the scene," Qedra said.

    ​Meanwhile, the Palestinian Red Crescent said that 130 Palestinians got medical assistance in the West Bank.

    Trump made a decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on December 6. The move triggered protests in the Muslim nations across the Middle East and led to clashes between Israeli army and Palestinians, in particular.
