"We can not stop the tens of thousands of residents who will go north, south and east to protest against the siege imposed upon Gaza", he said, according to reports in Israeli media.

Another two additional wounded from live fire were taken to a hospital in Slafit south. the ministry said.

"We are experiencing terrorist attacks by Arabs from the villages near the settlement, nearly daily", said Yitzhar secretariat chairman Uriah Cohen. Israeli settlements are growing at a record pace, and often intentionally in places to make a contiguous Palestine impossible.

When the security coordinator arrived at the scene, his vehicle was pelted with stones, the spokesman said. Netanyahu is already presenting Palestine as getting something short of independence, and as their control in the West Bank continues to shrink, so too will Israel's far-right government believe they can offer even less.

Meanwhile, at least four people were wounded in the Gaza Strip on Friday, one of them seriously, in clashes along the border with Israel, the health ministry in the Palestinian enclave said. In December, IDF soldiers killed a legless Palestinian man protesting near the Gaza border, Palestinian officials said, causing an global outcry.

Following a meeting of foreign ministers of the Arab League in Cairo, Palestinian Authority (PA) Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki blamed the intergovernmental organization on Thursday for encouraging the United States "to continue with its unfortunate approach" regarding Jerusalem, reported Wafa, the official PA news site.

The Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future state.

At least 30 Palestinians and two Israelis have been killed since Trump's December 6 announcement.

Trump's decision, welcomed by Israel, has been condemned by leaders and foreign ministers across the world, who have said the city's status should be determined through negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.
