HEBRON, Palestine (AA): A 5-year-old Palestinian girl was injured Sunday after being run over by an Israeli military vehicle in the West Bank old city of Hebron, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent. Meanwhile, more than 150 Palestinians on Sunday were injured in occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.

In a statement, the Red Crescent said the child was rushed to hospital for treatment.

The Palestinian health ministry said the child suffered bruises in her lower part.

There was no comment from the Israeli army on the incident.

Meanwhile, more than 150 Palestinians on Sunday were injured in occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip after Israeli security forces dispersed the protests against the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

In a statement the Palestine’s Red Crescent said a total of 157 people were injured during the clashes that took place in Ramallah, Tulkarim and Bethlehem cities, and Gaza Strip.

Israeli forces used tear gas, live ammunition and rubber bullets to disperse the protesters. 13 people were injured in Gaza and 144 others in various parts of West Bank, it said.

Since Friday, four Palestinians were killed and over a thousand injured in clashes as well as Israeli airstrikes in the Gaza Strip and West Bank since Friday.

On Wednesday, Trump announced U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and said the U.S. Embassy would be relocated from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The dramatic shift in Washington’s Jerusalem policy triggered demonstrations in the occupied Palestinian territories and Muslim countries.

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem — now occupied by Israel — might eventually serve as the capital of a future Palestinian state.
