>> Funerals for two Hamas gunmen killed before dawn on Saturday in Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip. Israel launched the raids in retaliation for Palestinian rocket fire after Friday's so-called Day of Rage. Hamas, which controls Gaza, has urged Palestinians to keep up the confrontation with Israeli troops in response to Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
It launched at least three rockets towards Southern Israel. At least 25 people were wounded in the Israeli strikes, including six children. Against the rallies, Israeli forces have used gunfire and tear gas while protesters have thrown rocks and burned tires. Palestinian protests on Saturday were, however, more subdued. The Turkish and French presidents have agreed to join forces to persuade the United States to reconsider its decision.
A senior United Arab Emirates official called Trump's step, quote, a gift to radicalism. The status of Jerusalem has for generations been one of the biggest obstacles to a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.
