Mohammed Sami al-Dahdouh was injured in Gaza protesting Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israeli capital.

She said that for acknowledging the basic truth that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, we are accused of harming peace, but that the record will reflect that we reject that outrageous claim.

Al-Kafarneh's killing brings the death toll of Palestinians killed by the Zionist occupation forces since Trump's announcement to 11 - seven killed in clashes, and four killed in airstrikes.

Also, the Israeli military said thousands of Palestinians participated in the protest demonstrations along the Gaza border and across the West Bank "hurling firebombs and rocks and rolling burning tires" at Israeli forces.

In a major rebuttal to the US, the UN General Assembly overwhelmingly passed a resolution on Thursday to reject the USA recent move on Jerusalem, demanding all member states comply with UN Security Council's resolutions regarding the status of Jerusalem. More than 500 Palestinian protesters have been arrested by Israeli security forces.
