Three other Palestinians were wounded, one critically, it said.

The most intense clashes erupted in Gaza where Israeli forces fired live ammunition to deter protesters from trespassing on Israeli territory. Soldiers opened fire because the Palestinians "posed a threat".

The Trump administration's endorsement of settlements in the occupied West Bank is another factor behind the rise in tensions between Ramallah and Washington.

Main roads have been closed, villages sealed off, and inspections of Palestinians increased.

All settlements across the West Bank are illegal under worldwide law, particularly article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, which establishes that the occupying power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.

Embassy Havana employees have been targeted in specific attacks ", suffering "significant injuries as a outcome of these attacks". Ranking Pakistan on Level 3 (reconsider travel ), the State Department asked its citizens to reconsider travel to Pakistan.

The leap in the number of attacks corresponded with an uptick in terrorist activity following President Donald Trump's December 6 declaration that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

He further elaborated that the U.S.'s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel confirmed his country's commitment to the process of peaceful settlement in the Middle East.

Israel's occupation of East Jerusalem effectively put the entire city under de facto Israeli control.

The move ended decades of Washington's neutrality on Jerusalem, a key issue in the Palestine-Israel conflict and caused global outrage at what analysts describe as a flagrant violation of Palestinian sovereignty and a blow to their right to statehood. Israeli jurisdiction and ownership of Jerusalem, however, is not recognised by the global community.
