TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Palestinian groups in Ramallah called for a ‘week of rage’ across the occupied Palestinian territories to protest against the US decision to recognize the city of al-Quds (Jerusalem) as capital of Israel.
The Palestinian groups based in Ramallah have called for a week of rage in all Palestinian lands, according to Al-Mayadeen TV.
The request came after two Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire in demonstrations along the Gaza border on Friday. Israeli violence has flared amid tensions over the status of al-Quds after US President Donald Trump early this month recognized the Palestinian city as Israel's capital.
The United Nations General Assembly on Thursday rebuked the move.
Hundreds of Palestinians, including minors, have suffered serious injuries by Israeli forces since protests broke out across the occupied Palestinian territories, including the Gaza Strip.
Since Trump's announcement on December 6, reports suggest a spike in military detentions of Palestinian children, with the number of minors held in one Ramallah-based detention center more than doubling compared with the previous month.
According to the UN, at least 345 Palestinian children were injured between December 5-18 in the wake of Trump's declaration.
A separate tally by the Palestinian Red Crescent said that nearly 3,600 Palestinians were injured during protests, 729 of whom were wounded with rubber bullets and at least 192 by live rounds.
