Security guard stabbed in Jerusalem amid global clashes over Trump decision

Israeli forces clash with Palestinian protesters near an Israeli checkpoint in the West Bank city of Bethlehem

Hazim Qasem, a spokesman for Hamas, said Israel will suffer the consequences of the escalation and accused the United States of giving Israel "cover for these crimes".

The rally in Indonesia's capital drew a crowd of at least 5,000 people, police said. Upon departing for a diplomatic visit to Paris and Brussels, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was prepared to respond to critics.

Pence was scheduled to meet Abbas later this month as a part of his Middle East tour. "We believe that the only realistic solution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine is based on two states", she added. The Palestinians see occupied East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

Hundreds of people across the most populous Muslim country staged protests Friday against Trump administration's policy shift on the contested city.

However, street protests in Gaza and the West Bank were less intense on Saturday than on the previous two days and the military said there were no rocket launchings on Saturday night.

A Palestinian protester runs for cover from teargas fired by Israeli troops during clashes on the Israeli border with Gaza, Dec. 10, 2017.


An Israeli Army commander has been suspended after being filmed stealing apples from a Palestinian vendor's stand in the West Bank town of Hebron.

Most countries have maintained the position that decisions about Jerusalem's status should be left to future negotiations.

The French President reaffirmed his "disapproval of Mr Trump's controversial move, saying the United States had "unilaterally recognised something that is not complying with the global law".

He said that many Arab nations were increasingly aligned with Israel to tackle Iran's regional threat.

Erdogan has called for holding an extraordinary summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation on Wednesday in Istanbul, which he hopes to draw up a roadmap for Muslim nations to follow as they oppose the USA decision.

"The US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is invalid and constitutes a unsafe breach of worldwide law and UN Security Council resolutions", reads the document, adopted as a result of an emergency ministerial meeting in the Egyptian capital Cairo.
