A Palestinian teen from the Gaza Strip was killed east of the Burij refugee camp after a live round was sacked into his chest, the Wafa news agency quoted medical sources as saying.

The Russian Foreign Ministry added that Israel's steps undermined the prospects for the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on the two-state solution principle.

"Given the clear and absolute harm caused to the rights of Palestinian landowners in the occupied territories, it was expected that the Supreme Court should have issued an order nisi much more quickly in this petition".

Another 16-year-old, Omar Qadous, also died from a gunshot injury Friday during protests near the villages of Iraq Burin and Til.

Strict measures have been imposed on tens of thousands of Palestinians following the killing of an Israeli rabbi in a drive-by shooting in the West Bank this week.

Israeli forces opened live fire on the protesters, who threw rocks towards the border fence, tens of meters away from Israeli forces.

JAPAN: Bank of Japan unexpectedly cut its purchases of long-dated Japanese government bonds, sending the Japanese yen higher. France's CAC 40 gained 0.5 percent, the FTSE 100 in London rose 0.2 percent and Germany's DAX climbed 0.3 percent.


Clashes between Palestinians protesting U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and Israeli forces left dozens injured Friday, Palestinian health officials said.

Trump's decision on Jerusalem and announcement in December that the United States would start the process of moving its embassy from Tel Aviv enraged the Palestinians who said the United States can no longer broker peace with Israel.

The status of Jerusalem has ignited tensions between Israelis and Palestinians for decades.

Israel captured eastern Jerusalem - which includes Judaism's holiest sites, the Temple Mount and the Western Wall in the Old City - and the West Bank in the 1967 defensive war, seizing it from Jordanian occupation and reuniting the city.

The Israeli occupation of the West Bank is viewed as illegal under global law and the UN Security Council regards the country as an occupying power.

Palestinian leaders want East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.
