The worldwide community does not recognise the ancient city as Israel's capital, insisting that the issue can only be resolved in negotiations.

"The US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is invalid and constitutes a unsafe breach of worldwide law and UN Security Council resolutions", reads the document, adopted as a result of an emergency ministerial meeting in the Egyptian capital Cairo.

Anger throughout the Muslim and Arab world has included protests in Egypt and Jordan, which also has a special role as the official custodian of Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem.

AN Israeli security guard has been stabbed in the chest in a sickening attack that was captured by security cameras. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the guard sustained a serious wound to his upper body and the attacker was apprehended.

"The Palestinian people have suffered so much and continue to suffer because of Israel's barbaric colonisation", said one of the protesters, 43-year-old Mustapha.

"Jerusalem has been occupied for 50 years". Israeli forces have killed more than 260 Palestinians in that time, mostly attackers.

Egypt has repeatedly voiced its concerns over the US controversial recognition of the holy city of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, stressing the move would negatively affect stability in the Middle East region.

He also lashed out at the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, saying he would not "take lectures" from someone who bombs Kurdish villages, supports Iran and "terrorists" in Gaza.

Meanwhile the Arab Leagues head has called the U.S.' Jerusalem move "dangerous and unacceptable" and a "flagrant attack on a political solution" to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Trump has said he would support the idea if both sides endorse it - effectively giving Israel a veto over any peace proposal.

The statement by 22 countries, including close United States allies, comes after a third day of violence and protests in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

His decision upended seven decades of US foreign policy that has resisted a recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital before the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is resolved.

Hundreds protested in the West Bank and Gaza on Saturday, but crowds were smaller than in previous days.

Lebanon is home to 450,000 Palestinian refugees, almost 10 percent of the population.

Emmanuel Macron, the French president, has warned USA recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital was a "threat to peace" as he hosted the country's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, on his first foreign trip since Donald Trump provoked widespread condemnation with the decision, Guardian writes.

The protest in Lebanon, which is home to 450,000 refugees, was met with tear gas and water cannons fired by Lebanese security forces on Sunday, Reuters reported.

Arab officials say US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital risks plunging the Middle East into "violence and chaos".

Echoing a message that European foreign ministers are set to carry during further talks in Brussels on Monday, Macron also urged him to freeze Israeli settlement building in the occupied territories.

Trump's announcement sparked protests across the region.

He said the US was not prejudging final-status negotiations about the city's final borders and expressed hope that world leaders understand the U.S.is committed to moving forward with a peace plan he expects to be unveiled in the new year.

An worldwide consensus has long held that Jerusalem's final status should be determined through negotiations.

Erdogan earlier described the status of Jerusalem, whose eastern sector Palestinians see as the capital of their future state, as a "red line" for Muslims.
