It follows the decision by US President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Trump's controversial decision to back Israel's claim on Jerusalem overturned decades of cautious United States policy and has re-ignited bitter centuries-old arguments between Jews, Muslims and Christians about the disputed status of the religious world's most coveted city.

Her remarks come after Netanyahu criticised Europe for "hypocrisy" for condemning Trump's announcement but not rockets fired into Israel from Gaza. The Palestinians see occupied East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he would fight against the controversial declaration, describing Israel as a "terrorist state" that kills children, in a speech in Istanbul.

In the Indonesian capital Jakarta on Sunday, thousands protested outside the USA embassy, many waving banners saying "Palestine is in our hearts".

"There is in this a blessing, because this could help pave the way to an ultimate peace between us and our Palestinian neighbors and between us and the rest of the Arab world", he said.

European countries, like most nations, have criticized the Trump administration's decision last week which reversed decades of US policy.

If the US vetoes such a resolution, the Arabs would seek a similar resolution in the U.N. General Assembly, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Malki told a news conference in Cairo.

The clashes resumed in the afternoon, with security forces chasing protesters, arresting a handful of them and lobbing tear gas. "One of the manifestations of this refusal is the mere refusal to sit down with Israel".

Two Palestinians in the Gaza Strip were killed in clashes on Friday and another two from Israeli air strikes in retaliation for rockets fired from the Palestinian enclave.

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has said it "deeply regrets" Mr Trump's move to formally recognise Jerusalem and his plan to relocate the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Israeli police said a security guard was stabbed and seriously wounded near the Jerusalem bus terminal. Palestinian officials said Pence had been due to meet Abbas on Dec 19.

He said that many Arab nations were increasingly aligned with Israel to tackle Iran's regional threat.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who heads the nationalist Yisrael Beiteinu party, called for a boycott of Arab businesses in an area where residents took part in violent protests of the USA recognition.
