His move has infuriated Palestinians who consider the eastern part of Jerusalem, annexed by Israel, as the capital of their future state. Israel considers the entire city its capital.

The Palestinian leadership has frozen ties with the White House over its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

On Monday, as the US inaugurated its embassy in Jerusalem, 62 Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire during mass protests and clashes along the border between the blockaded Gaza Strip and Israel.

Israel says its actions were necessary to defend the border and stop mass infiltrations from Gaza, which is run by Islamist movement Hamas.

Jerusalem's status is perhaps the thorniest issue in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
