Palestine President To Shun US Vice President Mike Pence Over Jerusalem Move

The White House said on Sunday it was "unfortunate" that Palestinians were declining to meet with Vice President Mike Pence during his forthcoming trip to the region in the aftermath of President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Lieberman has long called for Wadi Ara to be incorporated into a future Palestinian state. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the guard sustained a serious wound to his upper body and the attacker was apprehended.

Four Palestinians were killed and dozens injured in violence following the United States announcement.

In East Jerusalem, Israeli police attempted to break up a few dozen Palestinians protesting on a main shopping street.

But the search must continue for risk-free options, he concluded. "But this study reminds us this is an important objective". Novo Nordisk is a pharmaceutical company whose products include hormonal drugs aimed at treating menopausal symptoms.

On Wednesday, as Trump made his announcement, he spoke about Pence's visit in his speech, with the vice president at his side.

The protests were the third and biggest in Indonesia since Trump's decision on Thursday.

On Sunday, violence erupted for a fourth day in the occupied Palestinian territories in response to Trump's announcement. Four Palestinians were killed in Gaza in Israeli airstrikes following rocket fire from there and in clashes along the border. Scores more were wounded there and in the West Bank. Even small crises over Jerusalem and the status of the holy sites in its Old City have sparked deadly bloodshed in the past. Violent clashes with Israeli security forces occurred in a number of locations.

While condemning all acts of terrorism against Israel, Macron said that he told Netanyahu that he was against Trump's decision, which was a "dangerous threat to peace".

Israel says that all of Jerusalem is its capital.

Israel will not be lectured to by a leader who bombs his own people, jails journalists and helps Iran and Hamas, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a sharp rebuttal to the most recent anti-Israel tirade by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He called Trump's declaration "null and void".

Upon leaving on a diplomatic mission to Paris and Brussels late Saturday, Netanyahu said he "will present Israel's truth without fear and with head held high".
