Fallout from Washington's Jerusalem al-Quds decision (II)

On December 7th 2017, US President Donald Trump announced a controversial decision that has sent shockwaves across the Middle East and beyond. The U.S President recognized the city of Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel’s capital. The announcement has sparked days of protests across the Occupied Palestinian Territories and elsewhere. And it has had a significant impact on the role of the United States in the Middle East as the mediator between Palestinians and Israelis. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is now openly criticizing the United State for its unilateral decision. Abbas has said he would no longer support any US plans for Mideast peace.

US militarily active in Yemen

The US military intervention in Yemen has long been an open secret. Now the Pentagon has confirmed that the US has conducted multiple ground operations in the war-torn country quote-to battle Daesh terrorists. The US Defense Department has also said that Washington has done so after Ansarullah forces created what the Pentagon called a crisis in Yemen which he claimed has given rise to the terrorists. Before the Saudi-led war on Yemen which is supported by the US, Ansarullah forces had pushed back al-Qaeda terrorists and Daesh was nearly non-existent in Yemen. The Saudi invasion has to some extent strengthened both terror groups.
