HEBRON, Palestine – Clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces rocked the city of Hebron on Wednesday.

This came after a march condemning US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital turned violent.

Protesters burned an effigy of a pig donned with Trump’s face on it and pelted Israeli security forces with stones. 

Israeli soldiers responded with tear gas.
