Red Crescent Spokeswoman Erab Fukaha said 40 people in the West Bank town of Qusra suffocated from inhaling tear gas during Friday protests against the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.

While Israeli security forces were placed on high alert in preparation for a Palestinian day of rage the protests, up until the moment of this update, had been mild and the Friday Muslim prayers ended peacefully. The Jerusalem protests are still ongoing.
