This replaces the Worldwide Caution dated September 14, 2017'.

On Wednesday, Trump announced his decision - despite widespread worldwide opposition - to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the USA embassy to the flashpoint city. "In addition to concerns stemming from terrorism, travelers should be alert to the possibility of political unrest, violence, demonstrations, and criminal activities when traveling".

In a "security message" posted on the consulate's website, the USA government said it published the Israel travel warning because of "widespread calls for demonstrations" beginning Wednesday in Jerusalem and the West Bank. "These facilities may temporarily close or periodically suspend public services to assess their security posture".

In addition, the USA embassy in London posted an urgent "security message" on its verified Twitter account, warning Americans in Great Britain "of the need for caution and personal awareness" after the president's controversial declaration.

"Americans in Jordan are encouraged to maintain a low profile and to remain alert to developments", the message said.

"For President Trump to recognize that this isn't going anywhere, that the freedom of Israel is just inherently connected with the freedom of Jerusalem.it's a recognition of a reality that's necessary in order for real peace to be achieved in the region, not based on false stupidities that have been promulgated for the last couple decades", Shapiro said.

Nujaba's leader Akram al-Kaabi was earlier designated by the Department of the Treasury "for threatening the peace and stability of Iraq". The move is expected to inflame tensions across the Middle East.

"We caution against the risky repercussions of this decision on the stability of the region and the world", an Iraqi government statement said.

The ministry also summoned U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Douglas Silliman to register its displeasure with the move, according to ministry spokesman Ahmed Mahjoob.

A number of world powers, including Germany, Turkey, and Russian Federation, expressed grave concern over the Trump administration's decision.
