The US has warned the Palestinians against cancelling talks with Vice President Mike Pence after Washington recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Hamas chief Ismail Haniya warned Tuesday that a U.S. decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem and recognise the city as Israel's capital would be a "dangerous escalation" that crosses "every red line". "Official travel by U.S. government employees in Jerusalem's Old City and in the West Bank is permitted only to conduct essential travel and with additional security measures", said the security notice from the U.S. Embassy.

At least 31 Palestinians were wounded in clashes in the Gaza Strip and across the occupied West Bank. "This shows the extent of servility of the Modi regime to the United States". He added that his administration would begin a process of moving the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Abbas recently met Jordan's King Abdullah II, after which they issued a joint statement noting that "any measure tampering with the legal and historical status of Jerusalem is invalid" and warning of the "dangerous" repercussions of the embassy move.

Slager was then criticized for trying to stage a scene to back up his claim of self-defense, by placing his stun gun beside Scott. District Judge David Norton, who earlier ruled the cop's shooting of Walter Scott during a traffic stop was second-degree murder.

He lashed out against Arab leaders, wondering if Al-Quds issue requires an Arab summit.

Haniyeh said Trump's decision is an aggression against Palestinian people and a declaration of war.

In the Saudi version of the call, King Salman told Trump "that any US declaration on the status of Al-Quds before reaching a final settlement would harm peace negotiation process and escalate tension in the region".
