Occupied Palestine: Nearly 300 Hurt in Renewed Clashes with ‘Israeli’ Police
Nearly 300 Palestinians were injured Friday in a new wave of clashes with Zionist occupation police on the Gaza Strip border and in the occupied West bank, a spokeswoman for the local health charity announced.
"The number of people hurt today... has reached 290, including 45 wounded by live fire, 30 by rubber bullets and 215 by tear gas," the Palestine Red Crescent Society's Erab Fuqaha said.
Violence erupted in the occupied Palestinian territories followed the US decision last month to recognize the occupied holy city of al-Quds as the Zionist entity's so-called ‘capital', prompting international condemnation and a UN majority vote to reverse it.
Meanwhile, fierce protests among Palestinians, violent clashes between them and ‘Israeli' occupation forces sparked after US President Donald Trump officially recognized al-Quds as the so-called ‘capital' of the Zionist entity on December 6.
He instructed the State Department to start preparations for the transfer of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city.
