Jerusalem protests claim their first life as Pallie is shot dead

Protester jumps into flames to show Trump what fer.

Israeli soldiers have shot a Palestinian dead while hundreds more are injured after violent clashes erupted over Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Protesters launched stones at Israeli troops, who responded with tear gas and rubber bullets while huge crowds rallied outside Jerusalem’s Al Aqsa Mosque, a flashpoint site in the holy city.

This afternoon, Palestinian officials announced two had been shot dead by Israeli soldiers in Gaza – but later retracted their statement, naming only one victim,Mahmoud al-Masri, 30.

Israel’s army, however, confirmed it had shot two people along the border, accusing them of being ‘main instigators’ of ‘violent riots’.
