Israel Arrests 20 Palestinians Suspected of Attacking Israeli Hikers in West Bank

Gazans demonstrate in front of the government's offices demanding the sanctions imposed on the Gaza Strip be lifted immediately

Earlier tonight, rocket sirens were heard in the Hof Ashkelon and Sha'ar HaNegev regional councils, as well as the city of Sdreot, when two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip toward Israel.

On its part, the Israeli military held Hamas responsible for any escalation in the Gaza Strip, and nearby Israeli areas. A third rocket reportedly did reach Israeli territory, but landed in an open area and caused no harm or damage. The small, radical group is affiliated with al-Qaeda.

The Palestinian Authority called for a general strike in Palestinian cities as a result of Trump's declaration, while Hamas has taken a harder line and is advocating for a new Palestinian uprising. The protesters also clashed with Israeli security forces firing tear gas and stun grenades, as well as rubber bullets and live ammunition.




Israel closed the Gilboa Crossing in the northern West Bank after Palestinians threw rocks at it during a demonstration, the Israeli Defense Ministry said Thursday.

Velayati vehemently censured Washington's move, deeming it "another stain of shame on United States policies" in advocating "violence, repression, undermining the oppressed people's rights, and destabilizing the region" aimed at preserving the interests of the Israeli regime.

In a Wednesday address from the White House, Trump defied worldwide warnings and insisted that after repeated failures to achieve peace a new approach was long overdue, describing his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the seat of Israel's government as merely based on reality.
