Trump to become 6th United States president to visit Israel

Trump to become 6th United States president to visit Israel

Member of a follow-up committee in the neighbourhood of Issawiya, Muhammad Abu al-Hummus, said that Israeli forces raided several homes and detained five Palestinians in the neighbourhood, who he identified as Wassim Nayef, Ahmad Kayed Mahmoud, Adam Fadi Mustafa, Yousif Issa Mustafa, and Anas Abu Assab.

As you've already heard, President Trump is in Saudi Arabia today. Among the 1,000-person entourage will be American security personnel.

Every bit of food ingested by Trump and his family will first go through a tester, according to the report.

"Relocating the US embassy will end the peace process".

A senior Israeli Cabinet minister has voiced concern about the U.S.'s $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia. It comes a week after the U.S. alliance with Israel was put to the test amid reports that Trump divulged highly classified intelligence obtained by the Israelis during his meeting with the Russian foreign minister. National Security Advisor HR McMaster said Trump will "express his desire for dignity and self-determination for the Palestinians".

At the same time, he says Israel welcomes Trump's push for peace, and its hand is extended in peace "to all neighbors, including the Palestinians".

Trump has sent mixed signals about how he will approach the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Trump vowed during his election campaign to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and to recognise the disputed city as Israel's capital.

It came after plans were changed repeatedly and had not taken the ministers into perspective, making them feel unwelcomed, it is claimed.

But he faced a mountain of pressure not to do that in recent weeks from foreign policy officials at the State Department, Pentagon and in the intelligence community, as well as from Arab diplomats. Trump is now planning to visit without being accompanied by any Israeli officials, though there has been speculation over whether that could change. And I would consider it one of my crowning achievements if I can do it.

Afterwards, he is expected to become the first sitting United States president to visit the Western Wall, the holiest site where Jews can pray and located in east Jerusalem.

White House officials traveling in Saudi Arabia with President Donald Trump say the system, which was last tested in February, has a shorter range than the missiles launched in North Korea's most recent tests. He'll visit Israel's Holocaust Memorial.

Trump's actions since have left them disappointed, with the embassy remaining in Tel Aviv - at least for now - and the White House seeking to restart peace efforts. So part of this controversy over Trump's visit to the Western Wall is that the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu wanted to accompany him there. The global community does not recognise Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem and maintain their embassies in Tel Aviv.

Palestinian officials believe Trump's visit will do little to resolve the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict because Tel Aviv "is more radical than ever before and will not be responsive to any initiative".
