Еще security forces descended on the area. Some protesters began throwing rocks at security forces, who in turn responded by firing smoke grenades and making several arrests. Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on December 6 in a live televised address from Washington D.C. and started the process of relocating the US embassy from Tel Aviv. The announcement has sparked a wave of protests throughout the world. The status of the Holy City is seen as a key issue in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
