Relations between Israel and Turkey took a bitter turn Sunday as their leaders traded accusations of involvement in terrorism, days after the USA recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "While I respect Europe, I am not prepared to accept a double standard from it", said Netanyahu.
Protests were confirmed in Karachi, Pakistan to Istanbul, Turkey and lingered along a road near a US embassy in Awkar, Lebanon.
An Israeli security guard has been severely wounded in a stabbing attack outside Jerusalem's central bus station, paramedics say.
French President Emmanuel Macron told visiting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to give chance to peace process in the Middle East by taking "courageous gestures" toward Palestinians to end the deadlock.
"Jerusalem, it is a divided city, and in the negotiations traditionally between Palestine and Israel, Jerusalem has kind of been, it's a deal breaker", he said.
Clashes in the West Bank and along the fence dividing the Gaza Strip from Israel have seen Palestinians burning tyres while hurling stones and firebombs at Israeli troops, who responded with tear gas, rubber bullets and live rounds.
The dramatic shift in Washington's Jerusalem policy sparked demonstrations in the occupied Palestinian territories, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, Algeria, Iraq and other Muslim countries. The Israeli military said one protester was arrested. The Arab League, in a statement issued after an emergency session in Cairo, called Trump's announcement a "dangerous violation of global law" which had no legal impact and was void.
Protesters in Indonesia have joined the chorus of thousands across Muslim-majority cities in Asia, including in Malaysia, Bangladesh and Pakistan, to condemn the controversial decision by the White House to reverse a longstanding U.S. policy and raise the status of Jerusalem.
The protesters gathered early on Sunday hundreds of metres outside the embassy to reject the United States recognition of Jerusalem.
"President Trump on Wednesday formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, reversing almost seven decades of American foreign policy".
"That is not the man who is going to lecture us".
Late on Saturday, Arab foreign ministers urged the United States to abandon its decision and said the move would spur violence throughout the region.
And on Sunday, the Arab League met in Cairo and announced its intent to seek a United Nations resolution to reject the Trump administration's position, as Palestinians contend that East Jerusalem should be their future capital.
There was no immediate comment from Hamas on the demolition, which came as Palestinian factions tried to meet Sunday's deadline for an Egyptian-mediated handover of Gaza by Hamas to Western-backed President Mahmoud Abbas after a decade's schism.
It said it would seek a UN Security Council resolution rejecting the USA move.
