Arabs reported 17 Muslim terrorists wounded by IDF gunfire during the riots. In Judea and Samaria riots, one terrorist was hit by live fire and another 14 by rubber bullets, medics said. An IDF spokeswoman said soldiers had used riot-dispersal gear against hundreds of rock-throwers.
In Gaza, two terrorists were reportedly wounded by live fire, one was in a critical condition, medics said.
Hundreds of terrorists rioted at the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem. Among other things, Muslim terrorists called out their willingness to become “martyrs” by murdering Jews: “We will sacrifice our lives for al-Aqsa.”
In Judea and Samaria, thousands of terrorists rioted in several different cities, including Jenin, Hevron, Bethlehem, Ramallah, Beitunia, Tulkarm, Qalandiya and the terror nest of Nabi Salih.
Hevron and Al-Bireh, thousands of rioters chanted “Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Palestine”
In Bethlehem, Muslim terrorists hurled stones at security forces, who responded with crowd dispersal measures.
Violent riots were also ongoing in Gaza, where dozens of terrorists gathered at two points on the southern Gaza border fence and threw rocks at soldiers on the other side. The troops responded with crowd dispersal measures.
In cities inside Gaza, thousands of Muslims rallied, some chanting: “Death to America! Death to the fool Trump!” and burning tires.
