Trump has pushed Israel to the edge of bloody conflict, says Chechen President'

The President of the Chechen Republic said on Friday that US President Donald Trump has pushed Israel to the "edge of bloody conflict" by recognising Jerusalem as the Zionist state's capital, Shehab.ps has reported.

"This could lead to a stronger and more organised intifada," Ramzan Kadyrov said on social media. "An expanded war."

Kadyrov described the US decision as a "stab in the back" for all of the countries which have been trying for years to reach a peaceful solution to the situation in the Middle East.

"How can we understand the policy of the American president?" he asked, adding:

Simply, all previous doubts vanished and the situation became very clear about who was the reason behind the emergence of terrorists in Iraq and Syria in order to reinforce his global domination.

While the international community has almost unanimously disagreed with Donald Trump's announcement, reports suggest that the announcement was done with the pre-agreement of Egypt and Saudi Arabia, with the Saudi Arabia going as far as, allegedly, stating to the Palestinian President to accept a village on the outskirts of Jerusalem as the alternative Palestinian capital.

Since the announcement, Saudi Arabia's royal court has sent notices to the nation's media outlets to limit the airtime given to protests against Trump's announcement.

Emboldened by Trump's annoucement, Israeli housing Minister Yoav Galant decided on Friday to promote a plan to build 14,000 new settlement units in the occupied Jerusalem.
