JERUSALEM - Thousands of Muslim worshipers are leaving the Old City of Jerusalem following Friday prayers at the al-Aksa mosque.

No major clashes with Israeli security were reported. Demonstrations were held at Damascus Gate Plaza [public square] and Israeli police used minimal force to disperse the protesters. However, hundreds are still gathered at the plaza in protest against the American decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.     

Protesters are shouting that Jerusalem is a Palestinian city and the whole of Jerusalem belongs to them.
