Clashes broke out frequently between the Palestinians and Israeli forces in several locations in the West Bank during protests over U.S. President Donald Trump's decision of recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
Close to 3400 Palestinians were injured and 9 were killed in these clashes till now.
According to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS)، there were 2776 injured in the West Bank، including Jerusalem، and 618 were reported injured in Gaza.
US President Donald Trump announced formally that the United States would recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital، on December 6.
As soon as the policy was announced، Palestinian leaders renewed earlier calls for mass demonstrations to protest against Mr. Trump's decision، and the Israeli military made preparations.
The Palestinian reaction، and the reaction of allies and sympathizers in the Muslim world – Turkey، Jordan، Saudi Arabia and Egypt among them – was one of disappointment and anger. All condemned Trump's decision.
