Clashes erupted across the West Bank, as Palestinians protested against US President Donald Trump’s recognition of the disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The powerful Islamist group Hamas has urged Palestinians to abandon peace efforts and start a new uprising or Intifada against Israel. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has also called on protesters to stage rallies, but said they should be peaceful. At least 30 people have so far been wounded in the clashes, some hit by live bullets. One person was in a critical condition. More troops were being deployed across the occupied West Bank, ahead of what Hamas warned would be a ‘day of rage’ this Friday.
