Palestinian protesters clash with Israeli soldiers at the Gaza border, January 12, 2018.

Forty-six Palestinians sustained light and moderate wounds by Israeli army gunfire on Friday during clashes in the West Bank and Gaza, the Palestinian health ministry said.

According to IDF estimates, some 850 Palestinians participated in clashes in 17 locations in the West Bank and more than 1,000 in four locations along the Gaza Strip's border with Israel.

Saeb Erekat, the secretary general of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, lambasted Israel's move and said that it "continues with its plan to bury all the chances of a political settlement".

Denny Cormier, a pro-Palestinian activist who lived in Gaza during the 2014 war, wrote on Twitter that it was likely the Israeli perpetrators knew the children did not pose a serious threat.

"An Israeli father of six was killed last night in cold blood by Palestinian terrorists", Friedman said on Twitter on Wednesday after a 35-year-old was killed near an illegal Israeli settlement near Nablus.

Tensions between Palestine and the US have spiralled since US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December.

U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy released the following statement after Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales announced his country will relocate its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, just as the Trump Administration intends to do.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem at the end of the 1967 war with Syria, Egypt and Jordan; the western half of the holy city had been captured in the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. Israeli jurisdiction and ownership of Jerusalem, however, is not recognised by the global community.
