According to a statistic by Prisoners Support and Human Rights Association, the total number of Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli jails reached 6,154, with 453 held under administrative detainees, as well as 311 minors and 59 females.

A Palestinian was shot with a rubber bullet in Beita town, while three others suffocated due to Israelis' use of tear gas.

At least 46 Palestinians have been injured in clashes with Israeli forces who again deployed tear gas and live ammunition at the weekly "Day of Rage" protests against the USA decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Tensions have been high in the Palestinian territories since December 6, when U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital, triggering condemnation and protests from across the Arab and Muslim world.

Locals told Ma'an that clashes erupted at a flying checkpoint set up by Israeli forces west of Iraq Burin, amid a wider crackdown and Israeli closures in the area following a shooting attack earlier in the week that lead to the death of an Israeli settler in the area.

Nintendo revealed today that Detective Pikachu will soon make his way to the United States in a new video game for the 3DS. The move marks another step in the recent resurgence of Pokemon that began with Pokemon Go's release in 2016.

Reports say Israeli forces had stationed themselves at the entrance of Nabi Saleh an hour before the protest, preventing many foreign activists and journalists from entering the village after which they dispersed protesters with teargas.

The protesters were rallying in solidarity with 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi.

Violence erupted in Palestinian territories followed the USA decision last month to recognize Jerusalem (al-Quds) as Israel's capital, prompting global condemnation and a United Nations majority vote to reverse it.

Trump's declaration on Jerusalem triggered protests across the West Bank and Gaza, as well as an increase in militant rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.

The Jerusalem and Ramallah EU missions expressed "deep concern regarding the circumstances of the recent arrests of two Palestinian minors, Ahed Tamimi and Fawzi Muhammad al-Juneidi", a statement read.
