State of Palestine: Violent clashes continue between Israeli security forces and protesters

Clashes continued between Israeli security officers and Palestinian protesters in Ramallah, West Bank, on Tuesday, marking a sixth day of unrest as protesters continue to rally against the US’ recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Israeli soldiers deployed teargas and fired rubber bullets, while protesters threw stones and started fires by burning tyres. According to local reports... Еще several protesters were injured in the clashes. Last week US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in a live televised address from Washington D.C. The decision sparked immediate outrage and fury from the Arab world. The status of the Holy City is seen as a key issue in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
