President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital is a "war declaration against Palestinians" who should rise up, Hamas leader Ismail Haniya said in a speech Thursday.
Though Palestinian forces announced three "days of rage" beginning Wednesday, during which Palestinians are to protest at Israeli city centers and embassies, Haniya said the uprising or "intifada" should start Friday and "last and continue to let Trump and the occupation regret this decision" that "killed" the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, reports USA Today.
Israel says it has increased its troops to the West Bank, where there are already injuries on both sides, per the Washington Post. Per Haaretz, at least 19 Palestinians have been wounded so far, one seriously.
Here's how others around the world are responding to Trump's move:
He's set to meet Thursday with Jordan's King Abdullah II, who also opposed the move, possibly to "coordinate a response," per USA Today.
"Political leaders do not stir things up, they seek to make peace!" he said, per the Times of Israel, claiming Trump has thrown the Middle East into a "ring of fire."
Saudi Arabia called it "unjustified and irresponsible," while Russia's foreign ministry said the recognition risked "dangerous and uncontrollable consequences."
Reuters reports a State Department memo sent to US officials in Tel Aviv asks that Israeli officials "restrain" their response to the news in expectation of "resistance … in the Middle East and around the world."
But he said other countries would soon follow Trump's lead. The Philippines is one possibility, per the Times of Israel.
But it said it also views Jerusalem as the capital of "the future State of Palestine."
It is set for Friday, per the Guardian.
Land rights and safety standards are among complicating factors.
