Jerusalem is Israel’s capital – Donald Trump


President Trump has announced that the US now recognises Jerusalem as Israel’s capital hailing the move as “a long overdue step” to advance the Middle East peace process.

The announcement has been welcomed by Israel but has angered Palestinians.

Jerusalem contains sites sacred to the three major monotheistic faiths.

East Jerusalem, which includes the Old City, was annexed by Israel after the Six Day War of 1967, but is not internationally recognised as part of Israel.
