Palestinians riot over Jerusalem declaration | Posted: Wednesday, December 13, 2017 8:13 am

Clashes between Palestinian rioters and Israeli security forces erupted last Friday in Jerusalem, as well as the West Bank and Gaza, amid Palestinian “day of rage” protests over President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

According to reports, some 3,000 Palestinians held demonstrations in 30 locations across the West Bank and Gaza following midday Muslim prayers. At least two Palestinians were killed after protesters along the Israel-Gaza border fence hurled rocks and burned tires. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said it fired on two “inciters” at the Gaza fence, the Times of Israel reported.
