Four dead, hundreds wounded at protests over Trump’s Jerusalem move

Four Palestinians were killed and hundreds wounded Friday in the West Bank and Gaza during violent clashes between Israeli troops and protesters opposed to US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Roughly 2,500 Palestinians rolled burning tires and hurled firebombs and rocks at police in several West Bank cities, and another 3,500 clashed with soldiers along the security fence in Gaza, the Israeli army said.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said two people were killed in Gaza, both of them shot in the head. The ministry identified them as Yaser Sukar, 23, killed in Shujaiyya, east of Gaza City; and Ibrahim Abu Tharaya, 29, shot during clashes along Gaza’s border with Israel.
Two more Palestinians died in the West Bank, the Health Ministry said. They were identified as Basel Mustafa Muhammad Ibrahim, 29, from Anata; and Mohammad Ameen Aqel, who was fatally wounded in the Ramallah neighborhood of al-Bireh.
Israeli police say Aqel was shot after carrying out a stabbing attack on a border police officer during a demonstration.
Photos taken of Aqel show him wearing what appeared to be an explosive belt. Police have not said whether they believe the belt was real or a fake.
At least 367 others were injured — seven critically — and taken to hospitals in the West Bank and Gaza, according to the health ministry. Most of them were suffering from injuries caused by tear gas and rubber bullets.
