Terror group linked to Al-Qaeda urges Muslims across the world to attack US and Israeli embassies and companies over Trump's Jerusalem speech

A terror group linked to Al-Qaida has urged Muslims from around the world to attack US and Israeli embassies and harm corporate and financial interests of both countries.

Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind issues a chilling statement warning of the ‘shedding of blood’ of Americans and Israelis following President Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The statement said: “Ansar Ghazwat-Ul-Hind urges the honourable Muslims across the world to attack and harm US and Israeli embassies, companies, and financial and commercial interests.

“The honour of Bait Al-Maqdisis will be restored by shedding the blood of Americans and Israelis.”

Protests have been taking place across the Middle East today following Trump’s decision.

US embassy staff in Jordan were warned not to take their children to school today amid rising anger.

In a series of tweets, which were posted following President Trump’s declaration that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel, staff said movements for US staff and their relatives was being restricted.

That was said to include an “instruction” not to take children to school.

The @USEmbassyJordan account also said services had been suspended and that all embassy travel, both official and personal, has been banned until further notice.

A statement posted on its Twitter account reads: “The recent announcement that the United States recognises Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and plans to relocate the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem may spark protests, some of which have the potential to be violent.

“The US Embassy reminds US citizens of the need for caution and awareness of personal security.

“Review your personal security plans; remain aware of your surroundings, including local events; and monitor local news for updates.

“Americans in Jordan are encouraged to maintain a low profile and to remain alert for developments.”

In the Jordanian capital Amman, unverified footage showed protesters chanting reportedly outside the US embassy.

The US embassy in Ankara was also targeted by demonstrators while arrangements for a sit-in protest were being discussed in Kuwait.

Elsewhere, US embassies in the UK and Germany warned Americans to be vigilant in the wake of the controversial speech, which was condemned by world leaders.

Tonight, President Trump said Jerusalem was the capital of Israel and pledged to move the US embassy in Israel there from Tel Aviv.
