Palestinians, Israel police clash at Jerusalem Old City gate


US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to cooperate during their meeting in Israel on combating terrorism, the White House stated on Tuesday, APA reports quoting USA media.

US President Donald Trump (L) speaks during a joint statment with Israel's President Reuven Rivlin at the President's House on May 22, 2017 in Jerusalem, Israel. Past sitting presidents have not visited the wall in fear of it signaling that The United States believes that the territory belongs to Israel.

"There is no regional peace process or anything like it".

During a meeting with President Reuven Rivlin of Israel, Mr Trump started to praise his new Secretary of State Rex Tillerson about the "incredible job" he has done. President Trump recognises that this horror must never be allowed to happen again, neither to the Jewish people nor to any other people in the world.

But in the Gaza Strip, dozens of Palestinians rallied against Trump and burned his picture and an effigy of him.

In his meeting with Trump, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had said: "I do offer my warm condolences to the prime minister of Britain, families of victims, and the British people".

Several dozen young Israeli men, some holding Israeli flags, were marching through the Old City's Damascus Gate on their way to the Western Wall on Wednesday when they encountered a group of Palestinian protesters.


Standing alongside Trump, Abbas, 82 and in the 12th year of his original five-year term, said he was determined to deliver an agreement for all Palestinians, although he did not provide any substance on how such an objective could be achieved, reported Reuters.

"This is what I've spent the last few days talking about during my trip overseas", Trump said. The two leaders expressed their support for the Riyadh Summit leaders' condemnation of terrorism and corresponding pledge to counter terrorist financing and combat extremist ideology.

He did not specifically mention the two-state solution, long the focus of global peace efforts and US Middle East diplomacy, reported AFP. "But they're losers-just remember that".

The status of Jerusalem is the subject of a longstanding US policy debate - and it showed during Trump's trip.

Trump, for his part, stressed the need to forge a historic peace deal, without mentioning any reference to the two-state solution or to an independent Palestinian state. The most high-profile moment of Trump's stay in Jerusalem was his visit to the Western Wall, one of the holiest sites in Judaism.

From Israel, Mr Trump departed for Italy for an audience with Pope Francis.
