Arab foreign ministers meet in Cairo over Jerusalem

Protests in Pakistan after USA recognised Jerusalem as Israels capital

It also raised questions about how Israel could so aggressively oppose worldwide boycott campaigns against it while one of its most senior ministers called for one against its own citizens.

A Turkish presidential source said Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and French President Emmanuel Macron will work together to try to persuade the United States to reconsider the move. But they are also Israeli citizens who largely reject the notion of becoming part of a future Palestinian state.

In more than two years of intermittent attacks, Palestinians have killed more than 50 Israelis, two visiting Americans and a British tourist in stabbings, shootings and car-ramming attacks.

However, street protests in Gaza and the West Bank were less intense on Saturday than on the previous two days and the military said there were no rocket launchings on Saturday night.

"Nothing could be simpler", he said, referring to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. The rage was apparent not only in Jerusalem, but also in other parts of the world, including Arab and Muslim nations such as Egypt, Turkey, Malaysia, and even NY.

Erdogan said in Sivas that Turkey considers the USA decision void, and that a "roadmap" will be developed at the OIC meeting that "will show that the decision will not be easy to implement".

Shortly afterwards, the army said it had identified a second launch from the Hamas-controlled enclave, but had not yet identified where it landed.

One rocket hit the southern Israeli town of Sderot, although public radio said it did not explode and did not cause any casualties.

Trump's announcement raised fears that a new wave of violence would erupt in its wake. Israel, he said during an address to the Turkish Exporters' Assembly, "is an occupying state and their police are shooting youths and children".

The UN meeting was largely symbolic as no vote on a resolution was planned because the USA wields veto power. About 60 Palestinian youths threw stones at Israeli soldiers across the Gaza-Israel border and the health ministry said at least 10 were wounded by Israeli fire.

The decision is likely to impact domestic Palestinian politics, particularly between Abbas's Fatah and the Islamist Hamas, now at a key stage in a fragile reconciliation process after a decade of bitter enmity.
