London [United Kingdom], Dec 10 (ANI): In the latest development in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a security guard has been stabbed near Jerusalem's central bus station.

The guard was seriously wounded on Sunday and his attacker has been arrested, reported the Independent, citing Israeli Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld as saying.

The stabbing comes amid heightened tensions in the region.

Earlier on Friday, the Israeli soldiers shot dead two Palestinians near the Gaza border in clashes over United States President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Various Palestinian factions, including militant organisation Hamas, called for a day of rage against the US and Israeli occupation.

An estimated 3,000 people marched, burned Israeli flags and stamped on posters of Trump in around 30 protests across the Palestinian territories.

The participants chanted slogans against the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, calling for a revolt against Israel to "liberate Jerusalem from occupation."(ANI)
