USA warns PA against cancelling meetings with officials

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

"The American vice president is not welcome in Palestine", said Jibril Rajoub, a senior member of Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas's Fatah.

Abbas praised the members for affirming their rejection of the "dangerous" move by the United States that "violates all worldwide resolutions and the basis of the peace process that considers Jerusalem as a final status issue", according to Wafa.

The White House warned on Thursday that cancelling the meeting planned for later this month in the West Bank would be "counterproductive", but Mr. Abbas has been under heavy domestic pressure to shun Mr. Pence following President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"It has been consistent opinion of the world community, United Nations bodies and India that Jerusalem was occupied by Israel in the 1967 June war and it is an occupied territory", he added.

Most countries consider East Jerusalem, which Israel annexed after capturing it in a 1967 war, to be occupied territory, and say the status of the city should be left to be decided at future Israeli-Palestinian talks. Meanwhile, protesters, the majority of them young boys and men, erected a barricade blocking the road and threw stones in the direction of an army base north of Bethlehem.

Israeli police said the protest was "illegal" and the Palestinian Red Crescent said 12 Palestinians were injured by shrapnel from grenades or by blows from police.

They added that they have been speaking to Trail while he's behind bars. "But as far as the police department, fuck you". Police say Loofe last contacted her family November 15 when she sent a Snapchat about being excited for a date.

In the Gaza Strip, mourners vented their anger at the funerals of two people killed during clashes at the border fence on Friday and the two Hamas militants killed early on Saturday. Scores more were wounded there and in the West Bank.

In the occupied Palestinian territories, a total of four people have now been killed and dozens wounded since Trump announced the move.

However, Palestinian protests on Saturday were less intense than on the previous two days.

A spokesperson for the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, the armed wing of the PFLP, said they were open to targeting United States interests in the region following the embassy move.

"I hear (from Europe) voices of condemnation over President Trump's historic announcement but I have not heard any condemnation for the rocket firing against Israel that has come (after the announcement) and the terrible incitement against us", Netanyahu said.

A Hamas source confirmed that the two men killed in the strikes belonged to the group, which urged Palestinians to keep up confrontation with Israeli forces.
