Protests against the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital by the US continue. People in Ramallah, Jerusalem and Bethlehem are continuing demonstrations, expressing their anger at the decision of the US President.

On December 6, US President Donald Trump announced his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and instructed the US Department of State to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv. The decision caused criticism from many countries around the world, first of all in the Middle East.

Israel seized then Jordan-controlled East Jerusalem during the 1967 Six-Day War. In 1980, the Israeli parliament adopted the Jerusalem Law and proclaimed the city as the "complete and united" capital of the country. The international community does not recognize the annexation and considers the status of the city to be one of the core problems of the Middle East conflict, which should be resolved on the basis of an agreement with the Palestinians, which claim the eastern part of Jerusalem. For this reason, all foreign embassies are located in Tel Aviv.
