The Palestinian Ministry of Health has announced that two Palestinian civilians and two Hamas militants were killed followed clashes with Israeli troops and Israeli air strikes, Ma'an news agency reported on Saturday.

Thirty-year-old Mahmoud Al-Masri was shot dead by Israeli forces in clashes near Gaza’s border with Israel.

Maher Attallah, a 50-year-old protester, was also killed by Israeli forces in protests in northern Gaza.

Two militants from the Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, were killed in Israeli air strikes targeting the group.

Three Qassam sites were attacked by Israeli warplanes in Khan Younis, southern Gaza and eastern Jabaliya.

Palestinian protests erupted in the occupied West Bank and Gaza following Wednesday’s decision by US President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

According to Reuters, more than 80 Palestinians were injured after Israeli soldiers fired live ammunition and rubber bullets.
