Germany concerned: Israeli settlements in West Bank

Germany concerned: Israeli settlements in West Bank

Palestinian Authority officials, though, said the soldiers fired without reason.

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.

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.

In the West Bank, five people were wounded by rubber bullets in clashes with the Israel Defense Forces.

Locals told Ma'an that clashes erupted at a flying checkpoint set up by Israeli forces west of Iraq Burin, amid a wider crackdown and Israeli closures in the area following a shooting attack earlier in the week that lead to the death of an Israeli settler in the area.

Israeli forces opened live fire on the protesters, who threw rocks towards the border fence, tens of meters away from Israeli forces.




Main roads have been closed, villages sealed off, and inspections of Palestinians increased.

A committee of ministers from Egypt, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Palestine met with Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi to strategize a response to President Donald Trump's decision to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city.

Following this decision, the European Union called on Israel on Thursday, to reconsider its plans to build new homes in the West Bank, recalling that any settlement activity is "illegal" and likely to undermine the viability of the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Israel's occupation of East Jerusalem effectively put the entire city under de facto Israeli control.

Momani stressed that all Israeli unilateral measures that aim to impose new realities and change the status quo in the Palestinian occupied lands are "null and void" in the eyes of the global law.

Palestinian leaders want East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.
