Anti-Trump Protests Flare In Beirut Close to The US Embassy

Anti-Trump Protests Flare In Beirut Close to The US Embassy

Turkey on December 9 condemned Israel's "use of disproportionate force" on Palestinians protesting the USA president's recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The Israeli police and special forces units have strengthened Jerusalem's public transport security control following a stabbing attack in the city's center, a Sputnik correspondent reported.

Erdogan also blasted Israel and Trump in a speech on Saturday, calling it a "state of occupation" and saying the US President had "unleashed conflict".

The snub over the US' recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital came after Egypt's Coptic Church on Saturday also cancelled an upcoming meeting with Pence in protest against Washington's move on Jerusalem.

Israel seized Jerusalem's Arab-majority eastern sector in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed it in a move never recognized by the worldwide community.

Late on Saturday Arab foreign ministers meeting in Cairo urged the United States to abandon its decision and said the move would spur violence throughout the region. Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future independent state. "President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital was the right thing to do and enjoys broad support from the American people; an entrenched bureaucracy has no right to stymie this decision". The Palestinian health ministry said the child suffered bruises in her lower part.

In the occupied West Bank, Palestinians set fire to tires and threw stones and firebombs at Israeli troops, who responded with tear gas, water cannons, rubber bullets and, in a few instances, live fire.

The rally in Indonesia's capital drew a crowd of at least 5,000 people, police said.

Demonstrations in the West Bank city of Ramallah and in Heron led to clashes with Israeli troops.

Trump's move has sparked protests in Muslim and Arab countries for four days.

On Thursday, a day after US President Donald Trump formally made the announcement, Jibril Rajoub, a senior Fatah politician, said "we will not receive him [Pence] in the Palestinian territories".

The Turkish president has used his position as the current chairman of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to call a summit of the pan-Islamic group on Wednesday.
