Demonstrators marched to the city centre, chanting anti-Trump slogans and waving Palestinian... Еще flags. The US President Donald 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 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.
