KINILENS | The Menara Kuala Lumpur is bathed in the colours of the Palestinian flag - red, green, black and white - as a show of solidarity with the plight of those in Gaza Strip and West Bank who live under Israeli occupation.

Anger over the possible evictions of Palestinians in East Jerusalem last week has escalated into the worst hostilities between Israel and the Palestinians since 2014. 

Israel captured East Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza in the 1967 war. The Palestinians want all three territories to form their future state. However, Israel later annexed East Jerusalem in a move not recognised by most of the international community who regard settlements there as illegal.
