Gaza City: At least 56 Palestinians were wounded by Israeli gunfire in the West Bank and Gaza on Friday as they protested in a fresh “day of rage” over US President Donald Trump’s controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Israeli forces also hit the Gaza Strip with tank fire and air strikes, the Palestinian sources said.

Israeli troops opened fire during clashes in several parts of the coastal territory, wounding 40 people, Gaza health ministry spokesman Ashraf Al Qudra said. Four were in a serious condition.

In the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry said at least 16 people were wounded when Israeli troops fired live bullets during demonstrations, while others were hit with rubber-coated rounds.

The Israeli military said about 500 demonstrators had burned tyres and thrown Molotov cocktails and stones at its forces in 30 different parts of the West Bank.

Israel also carried out air strikes on the Gaza Strip.

Witnesses said Israeli tanks shelled a position controlled by Gaza’s rulers east of Gaza City. A spokesman for the Hamas-run health ministry said nobody was injured by the Israeli fire.
