The US Consulate General in Jerusalem issued a security warning to US residents in the city on Tuesday, with an impending 'day of rage' announced by Palestinians in response to US President Donald Trump's phone calls announcing his intentions to move the embassy to Jerusalem.

"With widespread calls for demonstrations beginning December 6 in Jerusalem and the West Bank, U.S. government employees and their family members are not permitted until further notice to conduct personal travel in Jerusalem’s Old City and in the West Bank, to include Bethlehem and Jericho," the notice reads. US citizens are informed to avoid areas with "crowds crowds have gathered and where there is increased police and/or military presence."
