19 Gazans martyred since Trump’s Jerusalem declaration
   A total of 1,083 Gazans were injured in protests against Trump’s decision
Nineteen Palestinians have been martyred in the Gaza Strip since U.S. President Donald Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in December, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.  

In a statement on Sunday, the ministry said three children were among the fatalities.  

A total of 1,083 Gazans were injured in protests against Trump’s decision, including 238 children, the ministry said.  

According to the ministry, Israeli forces have directly tageted 15 ambulances during protests against the U.S. recognition.  

On Dec. 6, Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, triggering world outcry and protests across the Palestinian territories.  

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the perennial Middle East conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem -- occupied by Israel since 1967 -- might eventually serve as the capital of an independent Palestinian state.
