State of Palestine: Two dead, dozens injured in clashes at Gaza border

Two Palestinians died and over 40 were injured in clashes at the border between Israel and Gaza on Friday. Footage shows several wounded protesters being rushed to hospital in ambulances. Palestinian stone throwers can be seen hurling a range of missiles at the Israeli Defence Force (IDF), who were protecting the Nahal Oz kibbutz. Israeli security forces responded with a volley of tear gas... Еще and live ammunition in an attempt to disperse the crowd. Palestinian factions had earlier called for a ‘day of rage’ after the conclusion of Friday prayers, the third since US President Donald Trump’s chose to formally recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The status of the Holy City is a contentious issue in the Middle East peace process. Israel has always claimed Jerusalem as its capital, while Palestinians consider annexed East Jerusalem to the capital of a future Palestinian state.
