Security forces blocked the adjoining roads and remained throughout the protest, physically containing the enraged crowd from entering the embassy. US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in a live televised address from Washington DC on Wednesday and...

The decision sparked 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.
