Palestinian stabs Israeli in

Jerusalem, protests flare

Jerusalem, December 11- A Palestinian stabbed an Israeli security guard at Jerusalem’s main bus station on Sunday, the police said, and violence flared near the US Embassy in Beirut over US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
New protests flared in the Middle East and elsewhere today after four days of street protests in the Palestinian territories over the declaration, a move that has drawn global condemnation and sparked days of unrest in the Palestinian territories.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has repeatedly warned of the consequences of Trump’s move, also lashed out Sunday by calling Israel a “terrorist state” and “state that kills children”.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, meanwhile, visited Europe for his first trip abroad since Trump’s declaration, with talks planned with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris and EU foreign ministers in Brussels.
In Jerusalem, a security guard was in critical condition after a 24-year-old Palestinian man from the occupied West Bank stabbed him after approaching a metal detector at an entrance to the city’s central bus station. The alleged assailant was taken into custody.
In Beirut, meanwhile, Lebanese security forces fired tear gas and water canons at protesters, some of them waving Palestinian flags, near the US Embassy.
Demonstrators set fires in the street, torched US and Israeli flags and threw projectiles towards security forces that had barricaded the main road to the complex.
Arab foreign ministers who met in Cairo on Saturday urged the US to abandon its decision on Jerusalem and said the move would spur violence throughout the region.
Along Israel’s tense frontier with the Gaza Strip, the Israeli military on Sunday destroyed what it described as a “significant” cross-border attack tunnel dug by the enclave’s dominant Islamist group, Hamas.
In the Indonesian capital Jakarta on Sunday, thousands protested outside the US embassy, many waving banners saying “Palestine is in our hearts”. — Agencies
