  • Israeli forces clash with Palestinian protesters near an Israeli checkpoint in the West Bank city of Bethlehem

The attack comes in the wake of mass protests in Jerusalem against US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize the city as the Israeli capital and move the US embassy from Tel Aviv.

"We will not abandon Jerusalem to the mercy of a state that kills children", he said at a political congress.

Trump's recognition of Jerusalem has infuriated the Arab world and upset Western allies, who say it is a blow to peace efforts and risks causing further unrest in the Middle East.

Protesters, some of them waving Palestinian flags, set fires in the street and threw projectiles toward security forces that had barricaded the main road to the US Embassy in the Awkar area north of Beirut.

Bettman says National Hockey League will consider Seattle expansion bid
The NHL Board of Governors, meeting in Florida on Thursday, voted to accept an application for an expansion team in Seattle . The Seattle group includes Jerry Bruckheimer, a Hollywood producer, and David Bonderman, a private equity CEO.

The IDF said that riots on Saturday took place in approximately 20 locations across the Palestinian territories, during which protesters burned tyres and threw firebombs and rocks at Israeli troops.

Israel launched airstrikes early Saturday against what it said were Hamas targets in Gaza, after several rockets were fired out of Gaza towards Israel. "President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital was the right thing to do and enjoys broad support from the American people; an entrenched bureaucracy has no right to stymie this decision".

Al-Malki added that all options are on the table to protect Jerusalem from Israel, adding that "we will use all legal and political means to protect our Jerusalem".

More than 300 people were injured Friday across the West Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem, 50 of whom needed hospital treatment, during protests against Trump's decision, according to the Palestinian Authority's Health Ministry.

Many countries continue to call for a two-state solution, with East Jerusalem as the capital of an independent Palestinian state.

Israel captured East Jerusalem in the 1967 Six-Day War and declared the entire city as its capital in 1980, a move condemned by the worldwide community to this day. Across the Arab and Muslim worlds, thousands more protesters had gathered to express solidarity.

Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo has strongly condemned Trump's move, which he described as a violation of United Nations resolutions.

Erdogan has used his position as the current chairman of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to call a summit of the pan-Islamic group on Wednesday.
