Palestinians, Israel police clash at Jerusalem Old City gate

Palestinians, Israel police clash at Jerusalem Old City gate”

Trump made clear that the new relationship Israel seeks with its Sunni Arab neighbors, some of whom he met earlier in Saudi Arabia, was linked to progress with the Palestinians. Trump labelled Bethlehem, "a precious city" and said he intended "to do everything he could" to achieve a peace agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians. That approach - and the diplomacy and nuclear accord it spawned - did little to endear Obama to leaders in Saudi Arabia or Israel.

"Three days ago, the U.S. added another $75 million to the aid package", Netanyahu said on Wednesday, without giving a timeframe for the money's arrival.

The worldwide rights group highlighted how the state of Israel has been "emboldened" by the new Trump administration to accelerate the expansion of illegal settlements in violation of global law as well as step up Palestinian home demolitions.

And therein lies the catch: The willingness of the Sunni coalition to normalize relations with Israel and the Gulf states is predicated on the resolution of the Palestinian conflict.

'PH to explore peaceful solution to sea disputes'
China claims nearly the entire South China Sea , a key shipping lane that is believed to be rich in marine and mineral resources. That code is still being discussed - a draft framework was agreed on Thursday but details weren't publicly released.

President Donald Trump used his centrepiece Holy Land speech on Tuesday to reaffirm his commitment to peace between Israelis and Palestinians, but he offered no new details on how to achieve a goal that has eluded U.S. leaders for decades.

Yesterday, Mr Trump became the first sitting USA president to visit Jerusalem's Western Wall, one of Judaism's holiest sites.

Trump has appointed his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as a senior adviser on brokering an Israel-Palestinian deal, while Jason Greenblatt, formerly a lawyer in his real estate group, has taken the day-to-day role of liaising with leaders and officials in the region on the nitty-gritty of a solution. We all know that.

The Palestinians, for their part, see it as the beginning of the occupation of East Jerusalem.

In a four-sentence statement, the coalition added that the pro-regime forces were "well inside" an "established" zone. The zone was set up around al-Tanf, an army base where forces are training Syrian militias, CBS News reports .

He said that he believes a "durable peace" between Israel, its Arab neighbors and the Palestinians can be reached "because of the common danger that the Arab world and Israel face from Iran, and because of the leadership that you bring to this process".

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said "several hundred" police officers were deployed to keep the peace.

Israel annexed east Jerusalem and the contested Temple Mount, known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary. However, the move has not been recognized by the global community.

Among the events were memorials for soldiers killed in the Six-Day War in 1967. The global community doesn't recognize Israeli sovereignty over east Jerusalem and Palestinians regard it as the future capital of an independent Palestinian state. It may be that his vision for Palestinians is more limited and hews closer to the Israeli right's vision of Palestinian autonomy or self-determination short of statehood.

A player like Butler or George certainly would bolster the Celtics' roster, but as Wojnarowski notes, it would come at a big cost. The 76ers, who used the top overall pick in Ben Simmons previous year , will select third.

While Abbas insisted on his position to demand the two-state solution along the borders of 1967 - the state of Palestine with its capital as East Jerusalem, living alongside the state of Israel in peace and security and good neighborhood - Trump did not speak about this solution and did not mention the term "Palestinian state", among other issues he missed to tackle.
