At least 56 Palestinians were wounded by Israeli gunfire in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Friday as they protested in a fresh "day of rage" over U.S. President Donald Trump's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Israeli forces also hit the Gaza Strip with tank fire and airstrikes after rockets from the Palestinian enclave targeted a southern community, the army and Palestinian sources said.The Israeli army said 2,000 protestors had thrown stones and Molotov cocktails at soldiers on the Israeli side of a barrier with the Palestinian territory.Trump's Dec. 6 announcement was followed by protests across the West Bank and on Gaza's border with Israel, with 12 Gazans killed in clashes with Israeli forces on the border or by Israeli strikes following rocket fire.
