Kremlin says US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital is splitting international community

Russian reaction the latest in many after yesterday's Trump announcement 7 Dec

  • Saudi Arabia called it "unjustified and irresponsible"
  • France and the UK said they did not support the decision
  • Israeli PM Netanyahu hailed it as "historic" and said he was sure more countries would follow suit.
Tensions in the region rising and Hamas has called for violent action in response to Trump backing up his campaign pledge but so far the market is paying little attention.

Keep an eye on this anyhow. Could escalate but let's hope not eh?

Just out :
  • Hezbollah parliamentary bloc says US decision will have catastrophic repercussions
  • resistance is only way to recover rights
  • US decision eliminates negotiation
