US President Donald Trump's announcement made Wednesday on the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has sparked negative reactions from many countries around the world, primarily in the Middle East, as well as led to mass protests and clashes between Palestinians and police in Bethlehem, the Gaza Strip and eastern Jerusalem, leaving over 1,000 injured during the so-called "day of rage."
