Thousands of Indonesian Muslims rallied in Jakarta Friday against US President Donald Trump's controversial decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "Today, I am delivering".

President Donald Trump's campaign promise to Make America Great Again is apparently going worldwide.

"Aid agencies say the humanitarian conditions have deteriorated in Gaza".

The ambassador said staff at the Tel Aviv mission had just marked its last day as an embassy and some of them would turn up for work on Monday at the Jerusalem embassy, which would host an opening ceremony later that day. The military aggression, which ended on August 26, 2014, killed almost 2,200 Palestinians.

Experts say the move is largely symbolic.

During the speech, Abbas stated that Jerusalem has been an occupied territory since 1967 and is the capital of the State of Palestine, open to believers of Christianity, Islam and Judaism.

Only Romania, Paraguay and Guatemala have announced similar moves since Trump's decision.

The stage is set for the U.S. to formally open its embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, a controversial decision but one that USA officials said will help bring "peace and stability to the region". More than 1,700 have been wounded by army fire during that period.

"There is no national security interest that is gained by moving the embassy - to the contrary", he said.

The Gaza leader of the Hamas militant group has suggested tens of thousands of Palestinians could storm into Israel on Monday.

"This decision is not merely a reversal in U.S. policy as it relates to Jerusalem, but the timing can only be understood by Palestinians as a deliberate and emphatic attempt to add insult to injury, not by the Israelis, but by the Americans who seek to claim the role of mediator between the Israelis and Palestinians", he said.

"This is a great moment for the citizens of Israel and this is a historic moment for the state of Israel", Netanyahu said during an Israeli Cabinet meeting in February.

The decision to move the embassy was announced by Mr Trump last December, and while United States officials then expected the actual move to take at least three years, the White House set the date in February for a move on May 14.

"We support the right for peace-to peaceful protest", said the second official.
