Clashes in West Bank leave Palestinian youth dead

Honduras' re-elected President Juan Orlando Hernandez shakes hands with the US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley before speaking to the press in Tegucigalpa

Israeli forces on Friday afternoon shot and killed a deaf Palestinian man in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron during clashes that were taking place in the Bab al-Zawiya area of the city.

Protests come amid tensions that rose after U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"Troops fired live rounds towards a main instigator who held a firebomb with the intent to hurl it", a spokesman said, adding an investigation had been launched.

Diplomats, unnamed but quoted in Egypt's al-Shorouk newspaper, say Israel's "take and negotiate" policy means that the longer they wait, the more Palestinian territory will be devoured by Israeli settlements.

Tensions between the sides have risen since Trump declared on December 6 that he recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

After this situation, the doctor gave him many check-ups to understand his physical condition. "He's OK. Giroud is in a good form now and working every day.

The official Palestinian news agency Wafa said he had disabilities, without further details.

Trump's announcement and the planned move in May of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem - home to sites holy to Muslims, Jews and Christians - reversed decades of USA policy on the city.

Israel seized mainly Arab east Jerusalem in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed it in a move never recognised by the worldwide community.

The status of Jerusalem, Israel's largest city and Palestine's planned capital, should it achieve sovereignty, has always been a hurdle in the peace process.

Palestinian group Hamas said it won't be able to stop planned protests in May when the United States moves its embassy to Jerusalem.
