Third day of protests hit West Bank, Gaza after US' Jerusalem decision

Protests in Pakistan after USA recognised Jerusalem as Israels capital

An estimated 3,000 Palestinian protesters demonstrated and clashed with Israeli Defense Forces at almost 30 locations across the West Bank and Gaza Strip - leaving almost 250 Palestinians injured.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the guard sustained a serious wound to his upper body and the attacker was apprehended.

Four Palestinians were killed and dozens injured in violence following the USA announcement.

In the occupied West Bank, Palestinians set fire to tires and threw stones and firebombs at Israeli troops, who responded with tear gas, water cannons, rubber bullets and, in a few instances, live fire.

"I hear (from Europe) voices of condemnation over President Trump's historic announcement but I have not heard any condemnation for the rocket firing against Israel that has come (after the announcement) and the very bad incitement against us", Netanyahu said.

"In the name of Fatah I say that we will not welcome Trump's deputy in the Palestinian territories".

Lieberman has long called for Wadi Ara to be incorporated into a future Palestinian state.

The Trump administration argues that any future peace deal is likely to place Israel's capital in Jerusalem, and old policies need to be abandoned to revive the moribund peace process.




Pre-dawn Israeli air strikes on Saturday killed two Palestinian gunmen after militants fired rockets from the enclave into Israel on Friday.

Trump's announcement sparked protests across the region.

The reaction of other European leaders to Trump's declaration was negative as well, with France and Germany pointing out that it disregarded all global agreements.

"While I respect Europe, I am not prepared to accept a double standard from it".

Upon leaving on a diplomatic mission to Paris and Brussels late Saturday, Netanyahu said he "will present Israel's truth without fear and with head held high".

Over the weekend, at least 140 Palestinians were injured in clashes in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Police have neutralized the suspect, who is allegedly a Palestinian. It also raised questions about how Israel could aggressively oppose global boycott campaigns against it while one of its most senior ministers called for one against its own citizens.
