Palestinians Killed in Clashes With Israeli Security Forces

Palestinians Killed in Clashes With Israeli Security Forces

City spokesman Salem Sharara said: "We have chose to cancel the traditional Christmas singing and dancing because we are in a time of dispute, because of what Trump has said about Jerusalem".

The health ministry said that a fourth Palestinian young man, who was critically wounded by Israeli soldiers' gunfire near Ramallah after he tried to stab an Israeli soldier, died in a hospital.

There was no word from the Bethlehem municipality whether it was also weighing a cutback on its celebrations at a crucial time of year for the town's tourist trade. "We condemn the decision", a protester said.

The shift in longstanding United States policy on Jerusalem sparked angry demonstrations in the occupied Palestinian territories and in several Muslim countries.

Jerusalem is sacred to Christians, Jews and Muslims and is a contentious part of Israel-Palestinian negotiations.

Ironically, during the OIC summit held upon President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's call, Israeli Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz invited Mohammad bin Salman, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, to Jerusalem by stating that Saudi Arabia is the leader of the Arab world.




Today, the head of Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas called for fresh protests across the world against the US President's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "We refuse Trump's decision".

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem - now occupied by Israel - might eventually serve as the capital of a Palestinian state. Having a special army unit named the Quds Force, Iran displayed its support to Palestine through Quds Force Commander Gen. Qasem Soleimani, who called Gaza-based armed groups they are in contact with to express their support last week.

Turkey has taken the lead in vocally opposing Trump's decision, announced on December 6.

Trump's announcement has caused a chill in USA diplomatic relations with the Palestinian government.

He also called for increased worldwide efforts toward the recognition of Palestine, and declared that Muslim countries are setting up funds to protect Palestinian families, according to Turkish news agency Anadolu.
