After a history of intense rivalries between Palestine and Israel, heavy clashes now erupted over the West Banks as a sign of protest over US President Donald Trump’s shocking annoucement and declaration that made Jerusalem the capital of Israel.

The possession of Jerusalem is long-standing debate over rival countries Palestine and Israel.

The recent announcement of Trump sparked controversy and resistance and it spread all over the region and essentially speaking, to the whole world.

Almost done simultaneously with the clashes, Muslim worshippers from Jordan up to Indonesia took their resistance to the streets.

In some Israeli towns, enraged protesters launched rocks and bottles to Israeli troops who responded with tear gas and rubber bullets.

The protesters were enraged with the drastic Trump political shift as for them, it is a vulgar expression of pro-Israel inclinations that will surely make an effect to the religious and political disputes on the region.

Palestine dispute their rights over the Israeli-annexed eastern sector and eye it as a potential capital city should they have their right over the land.

Jerusalem, on the other hand, houses the region’s most important religious sites for Muslims, Christians and Jews.

After the annoucement hit the national headlines, Palestinians responded quickly with mass riots and street demonstrations but some other staged armed fights which resulted to injuries.

According to the report of Inquirer, a spokeswoman for the Red Crescent paramedics, said 12 Palestinians were hurt by rubber-coated steel pellets and one by live fire.

But the resistance doesn’t end there.

Palestinian political parties call for major demonstrations in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem on Friday.

Meanwhile, Islamic groups like the Hamas showed cues of a possible third revolution against Israel.

The notorious terrorist group Al-Qaeda also called upon its worldwide supporters to target vital interests of the United States, its allies and Israel.

A statement released  on al-Qaeda’s network as-Sahab called for holy war or jihad and called America as an oppressor of Muslims.

On he midst of the protests, the preacher named Sheikh Yousef Abu Sneineh at the Al Aqsa compound said, “All we want from the Arab and Muslim leaders is action and not statements of denunciation.”

His concluding statements came more as a threat than a plain statement, “With our soul and blood, we will defend Al Aqsa and Jerusalem.”
