The U.S. Embassy in Jordan has warned of potentially violent protests following President Trump’s move to recognize Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel.
The Hill reported: In a security message, the embassy in Amman said it has urged U.S. personnel to keep their children home from school on Thursday and that American citizens in Jordan should "maintain a low profile."
"Review your personal security plans; remain aware of your surroundings, including local events; and monitor local news for updates," the message reads.
"Maintain a high-level of vigilance, take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security and follow instructions from local authorities. Avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations."
Trump on Wednesday officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital, bucking years of international norms and despite warnings from Arab and European leaders that the move could spark unrest in the Middle East region. The president said the United States plans to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, though he signed a six-month waiver putting the move aside.
