Israel's prime minister says Jerusalem will always be the "eternal, undivided" capital of Israel.

"We will not waver from our support for Israel's right to defend its borders", Burt said.

As the protesters descended upon the Gaza border on Monday, U.S. dignitaries ― including Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and presidential advisers Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner ― were celebrating the opening of the controversial new American embassy in Jerusalem.
