The Palestinian protests sparked on Wednesday following the announcement of the US President Donald Trump's decision on recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and relocating US embassy to the ancient city from Tel Aviv.

The representatives of the local medical services told Sputnik on Thursday that over 100 Palestinians have been injured in clashes with Israeli security forces, which occurred in the West Bank and Gaza.

"The number of injured in the West Bank raised to 104 people. Four of those wounded were injured with regular bullets, and 18 people [were wounded] with rubber bullets," Irab Fuqaha from the Palestine Red Crescent Society said.

Over 70 people were injured after the Israeli forces used tear gas on the protesters, according to Fuqaha.

Gaza Healthcare Ministry spokesman Ashraf Qidra said that seven people had been injured in clashes with the military on the enclave’s border. The condition of one Palestinian woman was assessed by the medics as critical, the official added.
