Germany is concerned that violent clashes could erupt in the Middle East following reports that US President Donald Trump would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.

In an update of its travel advice for Israel and the Palestinian territories, the Foreign Ministry in Berlin said: "From December 6, 2017, there may be demonstrations in Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Violent clashes can not be ruled out." The ministry advised German travelers in Jerusalem to closely monitor the situation via local media and avoid the affected areas.

Senior US officials said on Tuesday that Trump will recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital on Wednesday and set in motion the relocation of the US Embassy to the city.
