Erdogan touts steps in United Nations against US Jerusalem move

Wheelchair-bound Palestinian demonstrator Ibraheem Abu Thuraya who according to medics was killed later on Friday during clashes with Israeli troops gestures during a protest against U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the

"Through all of these years, presidents representing the United States have declined to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israeli's capital".

The Crescent City's Palestinian community will protest President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"We can not envision any situation under which the West Wall would not be part of Israel", said one official, adding that "as the President said, the specific boundaries of sovereignty of Israel are going to be part of the final status agreement".

In the statement, the bishops expressed appreciation for the positions in defense of the Holy City taken by King Abdullah II Ben Al Hussein in worldwide meetings, the last of which was held at the Islamic Conference in Istanbul, where he acted as guardian of Christian and Islamic shrines.

OIC also called on all countries to condemn the USA decision.

He said that under UN Security Council resolution 978, from 1980, no country can operate an embassy in Jerusalem.

Trump's affirmation of Jerusalem as Israel's capital has been slammed across the Arab and Muslim world, and hailed in Israel.

Last week, President Trump announced the USA recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital and will eventually move its embassy to the holy city.

This move caused great concern of the global community.

The dramatic shift in Washington's Jerusalem policy has drawn fierce criticism from the global community, including Washington's own allies, while triggering demonstrations against the United States and Israel worldwide. Israel calls Jerusalem its "single and indivisible" capital, including its eastern districts and historic center, repulsed half a century ago from Jordan and later annexed.

He further described Jerusalem as "the key to peace and war" in the region.

Jordan controlled East Jerusalem, which includes the Old City, from 1948 until 1967, when it was captured by Israel in the 1967 Six Day War.

Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem has never been recognised internationally, and all countries maintain their embassies in Tel Aviv.
