Palestinians observing

The Palestinians are observing "Day of Rage" on Friday in response to US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel.

Rallies and protests are expected near Israeli-controlled checkpoints in the West Bank and along the border with Gaza on Friday (December 8).

Friday prayers at the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem will also be a flashpoint.

Hamas Movement has urged the Palestinians to abandon peace efforts and launch a new uprising against Israel.

Leader of the Movement Ismael Haniyah in a speech in Gaza said we should work on launching an intifada.

Meanwhile, at least 31 Palestinians were wounded in West Bank and Gaza during clashes with Israeli troops
