Rex Tillerson says Trump doesn't need to apologize for sharing Israeli intel

Israel Police officers shot and killed a Palestinian teenager who attempted to stab them just outside the Old City of Jerusalem as President Donald Trump was visiting holy sites in the city.

Trump has spoken of reviving long-stalled peace efforts between the Israelis and Palestinians, but few specifics have emerged of how he intends to do so.

"Every challenge creates opportunity", Rivlin said.

"President Abbas assures me he is ready to work toward that goal in good faith, and Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu has promised the same".

Iran's newly re-elected president Hassan Rouhani responded to Mr Trump's comments by saying it was actually his country and its allies that have stood up to terrorists in the Middle East.

"And you could say that's one of the - if there's a benefit, that would be the benefit". "I have come to this sacred and ancient land to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between the United States and the state of Israel".

Trump, fresh off two days in Saudi Arabia, will journey to Jerusalem on Monday and his stay will include separate meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

"May your first trip to our region prove to be a historic milestone on the path toward reconciliation and peace", Netanyahu said.

US President Donald Trump told Israeli reporters in Jerusalem that he "never mentioned Israel", in an apparent reference to the intelligence leak during a meeting with Russian officials. They're losers, and we'll have more of them. On Tuesday, he told a jam-packed audience at the Israel Museum that both Israel and the Palestinians want to make peace.

The visit raised questions about whether the U.S. would indicate the site is Israeli territory.

KEITH: Trump said he would call people who commit these kinds of acts monsters, but they might like that, so. "I heard that over and over again in all the bilateral meetings" in Riyadh.

Referencing his earlier visit to Saudi Arabia, Trump said he believed "a new level of partnership is possible" in the Middle East.

The Palestinian Islamic and National Forces attacked the USA for "supporting the occupation" and said it rejected the Trump administration's "intention to return to American-sponsored negotiations". The two leaders met last month, when Abbas visited the White House in Washington, DC for consultations.

"The United States and Israel can declare with one voice that Iran must never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon- never ever - and must cease its deadly funding, training and equipping of terrorists and militias", Trump said.

While hosting Abbas at the White House in March, Trump boldly stated that achieving peace is "something that I think is, frankly, maybe not as hard as people have thought over the years".

Among the main bones of contention between Israelis and Palestinians are Netanyahu's insistence that the Palestinians recognize Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people and the Palestinians calling for a halt to Israeli settlement building in the West Bank.
