Israeli soldiers dressed as Palestinian protesters reportedly infiltrated a protest in Ramallah and arrested a number of protesters.

The plain clothes Israeli troops known as "mustarabeen" were filmed by AFP journalists at the protest north of Ramallah where around 150 people were protesting near the military checkpoint in the West Bank on Wednesday (13 December).

The Guardian reported how men in balaclavas, one with a Palestinian flag, pulled out fire arms, with one throwing a smoke grenade and rushed to the fast dispersing protesters.

Israel's military said Palestinians had thrown stones and firebombs at its forces while rolling burning tyres.

Violence has been ongoing in the Palestinian territories since US president, Donald Trump, recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital which have seen four Palestinians killed in clashes or by Israeli airstrikes. One Israeli was wounded in a stabbing attack.

Israel says it has been hit by rocket fire from Gaza on Wednesday evening.

Meanwhile, 57 member states of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation said the US can no longer play a part in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process

In a joint declaration, the US and Israel were denounced saying the decision to move the US embassy was a sign of the "US administration's withdrawal from its role as sponsor of peace". They also called for the symbolic recognition of east Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine.
