A Palestinian was killed on Friday by Israeli soldiers in the Gaza Strip during protests incited by the US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the health ministry said.

“Zakaria al-Kafarneh, 24, died after being shot in the chest east of Jabalia (in northern Gaza),” a health ministry spokesman said in a statement.

​Five Palestinians were injured by Israeli security forces, who fired rubber bullets on Friday during protests in East Jerusalem and in the West Bank, medical services said.

Israeli forces also used tear gas to disperse protesters.

On December 6, Donald Trump announced that Washington would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and would transfer the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
