Gaza6Dec5OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-Clashes have erupted between Palestinians and Israelis across the occupied territories few hours after US President Donald Trump announced the decision to move his country’s embassy in Israel to Jerusalem al-Quds.

The Wednesday night clashes broke out shortly after Trump officially declared the disputed city of Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel's capital, despite warnings from around the world that the measure risks triggering a fresh wave of violence in the Middle East.

In a speech at the White House earlier in the day, Trump said his administration would also begin a years-long process of moving the American embassy in Tel Aviv to the holy city. The announcement was a major shift by Washington that overturns decades of US foreign policy.

Apart from numerous condemnations from many other world leaders, such as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Turkey president Tayyip Erdoğan, UK Prime Minister Theresa May, and French President Emmanuel Macron, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres implicitly criticized Trump's announcement, warning that the Palestinian city’s status must be resolved through direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

"From day one as secretary general of the United Nations, I have consistently spoken out against any unilateral measures that would jeopardize the prospect of peace for Israelis and Palestinians," Guterres said.
