Clashes erupted between Palestinian youth and Israeli troops in the occupied West Bank on Friday amid ongoing demonstrations against the USA decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, according to eyewitnesses.

The Palestinian Red Crescent identified the dead man as a 22-year-old from the town of Urif, adding that at least one other person was wounded. The army said the incident will be reviewed.

"We can not stop the tens of thousands of residents who will go north, south and east to protest against the siege imposed upon Gaza", he said, according to reports in Israeli media.

As soldiers arrived, "a riot was instigated, during which troops used riot dispersal means and fired live rounds", a military spokesman told AFP.

The Palestinian leadership rejected an invitation by the United States to attend a donors meeting on the humanitarian situation in Gaza planned for March 13 at the White House, a Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) official said on Saturday.

Four Palestinians were wounded in clashes with Israeli forces across the West Bank, the ministry said.

Two advisers to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told Israeli i24news TV channel that bin Salman and Sisi had advised Abbas to accept the so-called "deal of the century" to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The situation in the region escalated last December, after US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem al-Quds as the capital of Israel, prompting the global criticism.

Tensions between the sides have risen since Trump declared on December 6 that he recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

According to the Palestinian human rights group Jerusalem Legal Aid and Human Rights Center (JLAC), "Israel" is now holding the bodies of 19 Palestinians killed in the past two years, along with 260 bodies of those killed since 1967.
