In the occupied Palestinian territories, Israeli forces shot and killed two Palestinian teenagers Thursday, as protests continue to rage over President Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital—and over U.S. plans to move its embassy to Jerusalem. Sixteen-year-old Amir Abu Musaid was shot dead at a protest near the Israeli border wall in the Gaza Strip; meanwhile, another 16-year-old, Omar Qadous, was shot and killed in the northern West Bank.The latest deaths came as Israeli officials gave final approval to plans for over 350 new homes in Jewish-only settlements in the West Bank, in defiance of international law and multiple U.N. resolutions.
