The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday summoned the representative of Romania, following announcement that the country is seriously considering moving its embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, in addition to voting against United Nations General Assembly decision of the status of Jerusalem.

"The Kotel is the holiest place for the Jewish people", Minister Katz said on Tuesday, "and I chose to name the Kotel station after US President Donald Trump, in appreciation of his courageous and historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel".

In May, Trump became the first sitting US president to visit the Western Wall when he visited the site during a tour of several Middle East countries. While no hints of what that peace offer may entail have been released, Capitol Hill observers have suggested that Kushner would reveal the contents of a new deal in early 2018.

Katz said the decision was taken to honour President Trump's decision to consider Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. At least 12 Palestinians have been killed in clashes with Israeli security forces, including two militants in an Israeli airstrike that came as response to rockets fired from Gaza at civilian areas in southern Israel. Al-Hurria station in the southern West Bank city of Hebron was closed "for content inciting violence and encouraging terrorism", an army spokeswoman said without providing further details. The project has been marked by numerous setbacks and delays. Known in Israeli politics as "the bulldozer", he has succeeded in advancing numerous large infrastructure projects countrywide.

Katz's plan involves digging tunnels underneath ancient holy sites in perhaps the most politically sensitive part of the world. The project would extend Jerusalem's soon-to-open high-speed rail line from Tel Aviv to the Western Wall, the holiest site where Jews can pray. 70 by Roman legions under Titus. Katz intends to name the planned station near the Western Wall after America's 45th president.
