Dozens of Palestinian protesters on Monday threw eggs and shoes at members of a U.S. delegation in the city of Bethlehem in the Israeli-occupied West Bank to protest the recent relocation of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.

Protesters angrily denounced the U.S. embassy move, saying they would not accept any U.S. activities organized inside Palestinian territory.

Protesters waved Palestinian flags and banners bearing anti-U.S. slogans.

U.S. President Donald Trump sparked an international outcry last December when he unilaterally recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and vowed to relocate Washington’s embassy to the city.

The embassy was officially relocated last Monday, prompting thousands of Palestinians to stage demonstrations near the security fence separating Gaza from Israel.

Scores of Palestinians were martyred -- and hundreds more injured -- when Israeli troops responded to the demonstrations with heavy gunfire.
