AMMAN —AlGhad— More than a dozen Palestinians were murdered by Israeli occupation force since Trump’s Jerusalem declarations two weeks ago, including a youth who died of his wounds yesterday, Friday, official Palestinian sources have confirmed.

Meanwhile, chief of the Hamas Political Bureau, Ismail Hanieh, warns that the US Administration may be pressing for further disrupting decisions.

According to Hanieh, the US Administration is planning to recognise Israel as a “Jewish State” and nullify the Palestinians’ “Right of Return”.

In the meantime, Palestinian Foreign Minister, Riyadh Maliki, confirmed that the Palestinian leadership does indeed have a plan to address the escalating situation through the UN and the International Community.

Two Palestinian martyrs, killed by occupation soldiers, were buried yesterday.

The death of Sharif Shalashel, 28, yesterday of his wounds raises the number of Palestinian deaths by Israeli oppression to 14, on top of more than three thousand wounded.
