At least 31 Palestinians injured in protests over Trump's Jerusalem announcement

At least 31 Palestinians have been wounded in clashes in the Gaza Strip and across the occupied West Bank, during protests against US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
 
One person is in a critical condition.
 
Mr. Trump's announcement - met with worldwide dismay - reversed decades of US policy on the sensitive issue.
 
Israel deployed hundreds of extra troops in the West Bank as Palestinians went on strike and took to the streets.
 
Protesters set tyres alight and threw stones, and Israeli troops fired tear gas, rubber bullets and live bullets.
 
The Israeli army said one rocket fired from the Gaza Strip exploded inside southern Israel while others fell short.
