Friday was the day of the most bitter clashes between Palestinians and Israelis. Four Palestinians were killed by gunshot wounds on Friday in clashes with the Israelis amid another wave of protests associated with the recognition of the United States of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, according to the Ministry of Health of the Palestinian National Authority.
It is noted that Friday was the day of the most fierce clashes between Palestinians and Israelis after December 6, when US President Donald Trump officially announced that Washington recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
He also instructed the State Department to begin work on the transfer of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The procedure may take several years. Many world leaders have criticized this decision.
Earlier it became known that two Palestinians were killed, 263 were wounded as a result of clashes with the Israeli army in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank on Friday.
Clashes of protesters with the Israeli security forces have been continuing for more than a week with varying degrees of intensity in response to the decision of US President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to transfer the embassy there. As of Friday morning, six dead Palestinians and more than 1.9 thousand wounded were reported.
