In the Gaza Strip, Palestinians held a funeral march Saturday for a 20-year-old man killed by Israeli forces during Friday protests against President Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. At least 13 Palestinians have been killed in protests since Trump’s declaration. Elsewhere, Israeli forces fired tear gas at Palestinians in West Bank cities, including Bethlehem, Jericho and Ramallah, injuring at least 20 protesters. The protests came as Hamas fired three rockets into southern Israel, prompting Israeli tanks and a warplane to fire on southern Gaza. There were no reports of injuries in the exchanges.
