Israeli Supreme Court: State Must Justify Why It Won't Repeal Unconstitutional Settlement

Around 2,000 Palestinians, enraged by US President Donald Trump's decision to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, swarmed the streets of the West Bank and Gaza for the sixth consecutive Friday, burning tires and hurling projectiles at the Israel Defense Force (IDF) in 20 locations across the occupied Palestinian territories.

Israelis see the video, which showed Israeli soldiers not reacting to an apparent attempt to provoke them, as evidence of the morality of their army.

"The number of people hurt today... has reached 290, including 45 wounded by live fire, 30 by rubber bullets and 215 by tear gas", the Palestine Red Crescent Society's Erab Fuqaha said.

Palestinians burn portraits of President Donald Trump, and the US and Israeli flag during protest against Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital in Rafah the southern Gaza on Friday. At least 41 people suffered light and moderate injuries as a result.

Spokesperson of the Gaza Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qidra, said that 16-year-old Amir Abd al-Hamid Abu Musaed was killed after being shot in the chest with a live bullet.


Another 16-year-old, Omar Qadous, also died from a gunshot injury Friday during protests near the villages of Iraq Burin and Til. The meeting was attended by the foreign ministers of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco and the Palestinian authority as well as by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) minister of state for foreign affairs.

"During the unrest [at the border with the Gaza Strip] servicemen selectively resorted to firearms against three main inciters, who posed a threat to soldiers and border facilities", the Armed Forces said.

In her decision, Israeli Supreme Court Chief Justice Esther Hayut called on the state to explain "Why should it not be determined that the Settlement Regularization Law is invalid in all areas of the West Bank, and that [Israel's West Bank military commander] is therefore forbidden to act in accordance with the law... and why should it not be determined that the Settlement Regularization Law is null and void since it is unconstitutional".

They also stressed the necessity to confront Trump's decision.
