East Jerusalem: Prayers, protests, clashes in Jerusalem over Trump declaration

Scuffles occurred between protesters and Israeli security forces in East Jerusalem on Thursday, as demonstrations condemning US President Donald Trump's declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel a day earlier continue to escalate. Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday in a live televised address from Washington D.C. and started the process of moving the US... Еще embassy from Tel Aviv. The decision caused an immediate outrage and fury from Palestinians, with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh calling for a «new intifada» against Israel. Israel has always claimed Jerusalem as its capital while Palestinians demand that annexed East Jerusalem becomes the capital of a future Palestinian state.
