Palestinian protesters burned a US flag and pictures of US President Donald Trump as the traditional Christmas tree was turned off in the West Bank city of Bethlehem on Wednesday, after Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The footage shows the Christmas tree lit in the background before the majority of the lights were turned off following Trump's announcement. Trump recognised... Еще 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 embassy from Tel Aviv. The decision caused an immediate outrage and fury from Palestinians. Israel has always claimed Jerusalem as its capital while Palestinians demand that annexed East Jerusalem becomes the capital of a future Palestinian state.
