7 December, 2017: Jerusalem latest: Protests erupt in Gaza as Palestinians respond to Trump’s decision with fury
Factions call for general strike and protest rallies at midday on Thursday
Protests have erupted across Gaza in response to Donald Trump‘s historic and hugely controversial declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
The announcement shattered decades of US foreign policy and triggered an angry response from Palestinians, who took to the streets burning flags and tires and chanting anti-American slogans.
Protests also broke out in parts of Jordan’s capital Amman inhabited by Palestinian refugees. In the Baqaa refugee camp on Amman’s outskirts, hundreds roamed the streets denouncing Mr Trump and urging Jordan to scrap its 1994 peace treaty with Israel.
