President Donald Trump has announced that the US formally recognises Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and will begin the process of moving its embassy to the city, breaking with decades of US policy.
The president said he ordered the state department to develop plan to relocate the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Al Jazeera’s Marwan Bishara explains why his statement is a “declaration of war against Palestinian rights”.
