The balance of Palestinian demonstrators injured in today's clashes continues with Israeli military units in the West Bank, in East Jerusalem and along the demarcation line with Gaza.

Two rockets were launched from northern Gaza to Israel. The Israeli military spokesman said that they both fell inside the Palestinian enclave. Alarm sirens sounded in Israeli areas around the Strip and the population rushed into the shelters.

"We call for a new intifada against the occupation and against the Zionist enemy, and we act accordingly": Hamas's political leader, Ismail Haniyeh, said in a speech delivered by his home in Gaza and broadcast by the issuer of Hamas 'al-Aqsa tv', while in the streets of the city there are numerous demonstrations of protest against the United States. "The recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is a declaration of war against us," he added.

The Palestinian authorities have today proclaimed a general strike in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza to protest against the decision of US President Donald Trump on Jerusalem. This is reported by the Wafa agency, which reports offices, shops and schools closed in many Palestinian cities. Already last night, according to the same source, there were spontaneous protests in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Bethlehem and also in the Strip. At noon (local time) an event is scheduled today at the Damascus Gate of the Old City.
