Israeli army shoots dead Palestinian teen in West Bank

Jordan's King Abdullah speaks during a session at the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland

Palestinians snubbed Pence's recent visit to the region after the U.S president made an announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and vowed to start the process of relocating the US embassy to the city.

"Some people who have been trying to express their point of view and protest (against) the American decision regarding Jerusalem and the political situation ... interrupted the workshop and we stopped the workshop", Hazboun said.

As he began to speak, Arab-Israeli lawmakers from the Joint Arab List party began waving signs protesting the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, leading to their expulsion from the Knesset chamber.

Last week, US vice president Mike Pence visited Israel, where he met with Israeli politicians and addressed the Knesset. "Not for the Palestinians", (Jan. 22), merely confirms what I have believed for years.

Tensions in the region have increased in recent weeks after United States President Donald Trump's controversial decision to name Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Shoukry's participation in the meeting comes in light of the Egyptian efforts to support the peace process between the Palestinians and the Israelis, in accordance with the global reference and the establishment of the Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, the statement added.

25, meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the World Economic Summit in Davos, Switzerland, the president also added detail to Pence's announcement that the USA would move its embassy to Jerusalem in 2019.

Trump told reporters at a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that "the money is on the table".

On Wednesday, Palestinian and Israeli media reported that the Israeli forces killed a Palestinian and arrested another in the West Bank town of Jenin.

Standing with Palestine as a non-Palestinian, I am writing in response to the article titled "Israel lists 20 groups to be denied entry over boycott calls" (Jan. 7).

"We affirm the importance of all states committing to refraining from establishing diplomatic offices in Jerusalem in accordance with UN Security Council resolution 478", he said.

The U.S has said that this month it plans withhold $65 million of $125 million which it had meant to send to the United Nations agency which helps refugees from Palestine.
