Palestinian Killed in Middle East 'Day of Rage' Reaction to Trump's Jerusalem Move.

A Palestinian man was killed by Israeli soldiers in Gaza Friday during clashes in a "Day of Rage" called for by Palestinians after the United States recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital. The health ministry confirmed Mahmoud al-Masri, 30, was killed in clashes along the Israel-Gaza border. The Israeli military confirmed that it shot two people in Khan Yunis in southern Gaza, accusing them of being "main instigators" of "violent riots."

Israeli police fired tear gas at Palestinian protesters in Bethlehem Friday as the "Day of Rage" called for by Palestinian factions got underway. Additional security forces were called into Jerusalem following U.S. President Donald Trump's announcement Wednesday that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and the U.S. plans to move its embassy there. Israel considers all of Jerusalem to be its capital. The Palestinians want the eastern part of Jerusalem for its capital of a future independent state.
