Trump's second-in-command Pence 'unwelcome in Palestine': Fatah official

Protesters shout slogans and wave the Jordanian flag during a demonstration near the American Embassy in Amman against U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel

The military said that upon the conclusion of the general staff's situation assessment, it was decided that a number of battalions will reinforce in the area of the West Bank, as well as combat intelligence and territorial defence.

At least 31 Palestinians were wounded in clashes in the Gaza Strip and across the occupied West Bank. Fatah has called for protests against the move, while the Hamas terror group has called for a violent uprising, or intifada.

Pence is due to travel to Egypt and Israel in the second half of December, a visit that has taken on extra significance in the wake of President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. However, Abbas himself has not made any comments over the visit.

"He asked to meet (Abbas) on the 19th of this month in Bethlehem, such a meeting will not take place", Jibril Rajoub said.

However, according to Jibril Rajoub, the secretary general of Fatah's Central Committee, a meeting between the U.S. vice president and Abbas is now off the table. In a telephone conversation with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Putin called for the Palestinians and Israel to "hold back" and renew negotiations.

Outrage directed at the US has emerged after President Donald Trump announced recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and also stated he would begin the process of relocating the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Matthew Tkachuk suspended one game for unsportsmanlike conduct
Tkachuk also received a two-game suspension in March 2016 for an elbow to the face of Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty. After the game, Leafs head coach Mike Babcock called the move " junior hockey stuff ". "But man, you gotta give Tkachuk credit.

"Today, we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel's capital", Trump said Wednesday.

Shtayeh, who has been a senior member of the Palestinian negotiating team since the early 1990s, explained, "When we refer to Jerusalem, we refer to Jerusalem that was there before 1967".

Holy sites for Muslims, Christians and Jews are in Jerusalem, and Palestinians have long expressed a desire to establish the capital of a future state in the city.

Rajoub is part of Fatah, the ruling political party in Palestine.

The letter cited several council resolutions that prohibit changes to the status of Jerusalem.

Abdelhady-Nasser urged the Security Council to send "a clear message" reaffirming relevant laws and resolutions and "opposing this unilateral and provocative decision".
