Soldiers open fire on stone-throwing demonstrators in Gaza and the West Bank, killing two teens and wounding others. At least five people in the West Bank suffered injuries when the IDF used rubber bullets to disperse the crowd, Haaretz reports, citing Palestinian health officials.

The protestors condemned the USA policy which biased to the Israeli occupation and they expressed their solidarity with the Palestinian people and the Palestinian detainees' families. Trump himself said that was evidenced by the Palestinian regime's latest refusal to even come to the negotiating table.

Palestinian protesters clashed again with Israeli forces on Friday.

The United States has adopted a new policy based on imposing financial sanctions and embargoes in addition to threats of use of force, which is extremely a new style that has never been used by previous U.S. administrations, Awad said.

Another 16-year-old, Omar Qadous, was shot between the villages of Iraq Burin and Til, in the northern West Bank.

Israeli forces in the West Bank searched for a suspect in the shooting death last Tuesday of an Israeli settler.

Former VP Joe Biden also had choice words about Trump's language, tweeting , "It's not what a president should believe". Trump made the remark Thursday during a White House meeting after senators discussed revamping immigration rules.

Main roads have been closed, villages sealed off, and inspections of Palestinians increased.

Israeli settlements violate the Fourth Geneva Convention, which states that an occupying power can not transfer its population into the territory it occupies.

In addition to recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital in early December, Trump said the United States would move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The status of Jerusalem is among the most contentious in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Israeli jurisdiction and ownership of Jerusalem, however, is not recognised by the worldwide community.

Israel regards Jerusalem as its "eternal and undivided" capital, while the Palestinians claim East Jerusalem - occupied by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war - as the capital of a future state.
