Yesterday, US President, Donald trump is recognized as the capital of Israel is Jerusalem, not tel Aviv.

The State Department has issued a warning for US citizens traveling anywhere in the world after the Trump administration announced its decision to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, recognizing it as the capital of Israel.

The Iraqi Foreign Ministry said it had summoned the USA ambassador in Baghdad and that it would hand him a memo protesting Trump's decision.

In its statement, Iraq also demanded on Thursday that the USA government backtrack on a decision to recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as Israeli regime's capital saying that "we caution against the risky repercussions of this decision on the stability of the region and the world".

According to the Associated Press's longtime diplomatic correspondent, this is the first time such a warning has been released over a policy decision since 2003, when the Iraq War began. Though made up of Iraqis, it is loyal to Iran and is helping Tehran create a supply route through Iraq to Damascus. The PMF is government sanctioned and formally reports to Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's office.

While it's unclear what the long-term effects will be, Bethlehem saw violent protests that included Palestinians throwing rocks at Israeli troops shortly after Trump's announcement, the Daily Mail reported.

The department on Tuesday urged us citizens to avoid Jerusalem's Old City and the West Bank over fears of protests and violent reaction to the president's announcement.

Jerusalem remains at the core of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem - now occupied by Israel - might eventually serve as the capital of a future Palestinian state.
