Dozens of Palestinians have reportedly been injured by rubber bullets and live fire, and more than a hundred suffered from tear gas and smoke inhalation in the latest wave of protests in the occupied Palestinian territories. Footage captured at the latest “Day of Rage” in Nahal Oz on Friday shows protesters fleeing and rushing towards an ambulance after clashes with the Israel Defense Force (IDF). The IDF deployed smoke and gas against the Palestinians, who responded with burning tires and stones.

At least 17 Palestinians have been killed and thousands more injured in the wave of protests that have gripped the West Bank and Gaza following US President Donald Trump’s decision to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, with hundreds of Palestinians voicing their indignation every week after Friday prayers.
