Clashes between hundreds of Palestinian protesters and Israeli troops erupted across the West Bank on Thursday while demonstrators in Gaza burned posters of President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as well as Israeli and USA flags. Security sources said no rockets fell in Israeli territory.
Rockets or mortar rounds were fired Thursday afternoon at Israeli army forces.
Palestinians and Israeli troops had skirmished at the border earlier in the day.
This latest report from the region comes after U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
Many outraged Palestinians demonstrated in the Gaza Strip, waving Palestinian flags, photos of Al-Aqsa Mosque and banners proclaiming Jerusalem as "our eternal capital" and calling it a "red line".
At least 31 people were injured in the demonstrations, according to Israeli medics, including one person who was in critical condition.
Reportedly, the leader of the Palestinian Islamist group, Hamas, has called for a new "intifada", or uprising, as protests broke out in Jerusalem, Ramallah and Bethlehem.
Jerusalem's status is among the most hard issues in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the U.S. traditional position has been that it must be negotiated between the two sides.
Trump also said the United States would move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, though he set no timetable for that.
