Israeli soldiers have killed a Palestinian man during clashes in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Health Ministry says.

Muhammed Zain Jabri, age 24 from Hebron, was shot by live fire and taken to a nearby hospital where he later succumbed to his wounds, says the ministry.

Participants in the funeral ceremony chanted slogans condemning the Israeli crimes committed by the occupation against children, women, the elderly and defenseless citizens and executing them in cold blood.

Medics in the two regions said 10 Palestinians were injured, while dozens were treated in the field for inhaling tear gas fired by Israeli soldiers to disperse young stone throwers.

In line with worldwide law, the European Union said it does not recognise Israelآ's sovereignty over the territories occupied by Israel since June 1967, including East Jerusalem, and does not consider them to be part of Israelآ's territory, irrespective of their legal status under domestic Israeli law.

Netanyahu is already presenting Palestine as getting something short of independence, and as their control in the West Bank continues to shrink, so too will Israel's far-right government believe they can offer even less.

Since Trump announced the controversial decision on December 6, at least 26 Palestinians have been martyred in clashes with Israeli forces in the West Bank and East Jerusalem and on the border of the blockaded Gaza Strip.

"We can not stop the tens of thousands of residents who will go north, south and east to protest against the siege imposed upon the Gaza Strip", Haniyeh said.
