Violent protests erupt near US Embassy in Beirut

Israeli soldiers arrest a Palestinian youth during a protest against Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital Hebron West Bank

When asked if the US will reverse the decision, he said: "The answer is no. The president's decision stands".

Al Jazeera, meantime, reported that some protesters attempted to pass through the barricade set up by security forces.

It has been said that the winner of the emergence of the ISIL is Tel Aviv, and ultimately, it was Tel Aviv who came out as triumphant in the post-ISIL era by Washington's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Speaking on Israel's Army Radio, Lieberman reiterated his stance on land swaps in a peace deal that would see Arab areas of Israel handed over to the Palestinians.

At least two people died and 200 were injured during clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinian protestors on the Israel-Gaza border on Friday.

Several protesters burned US and Israeli flags. The State Department withdrew its threat to close the PLO office after a few days, but on the condition that the PLO office would limit its operation only to "activities related to achieving a complete and long-term peace between Israel and the Palestinians and Israel".

Hundreds of pro-Palestinian protesters have demonstrated in Paris against the imminent arrival of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "One big problem is, of course, also the acceptance on the Israeli side".

He also urged for all former Palestinian citizens who now reside in neighboring countries to have a right to return to their homeland, a central element of the Palestinian cause, which activists have been battling to secure for decades.

Netanyahu insisted, however, that "what President Trump has done is put facts squarely on the table". In this context, talking about the Islamic world and expecting a coordinated reaction against Trump's decision has no practical basis.

He also said the EU would hold talks with Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas on the issues in January.

Alan Duncan, the British minister for EU affairs, pledged to confront Netanyahu on Monday.

In a call-in to a TV program, he called on Arab countries to "Throw sand in the face of the U.S." and to unify their statements.

The mayor blames a recent warning by U.S. officials to "maintain a high level of vigilance" when visiting the West Bank for keeping some visitors away.

Ahead of Mr Netanyahu and Mr Macron's joint news conference, Turkey's President RecepTayyipErdogan - often a critic of Israel - called it an "invader state", a "terror state".

"We hope to move forward with that initiative at a point in the new year..." "I " m very, very angry at him".

At a left turn onto Menahem Ussishkin Street, the branches of trees overhang the sidewalks. Trump "didn't talk about boundaries, he didn't talk about borders".

"The words were very carefully chosen".

"Because we want to celebrate Christmas", Mayor Salman said. She said Israel already has numerous government agencies in Jerusalem, adding, "Why shouldn't we have the embassy there?"

While Salman said this year has been "much worse than others", the mayor remains optimistic.
