Jerusalem - The Jerusalem municipality has illuminated the old city's walls with American and Israeli flags after US President Donald Trump's announced that the United States will recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The city also hung US flags along Agron, Shazar and Ruppin streets, and the string bridge is also illuminated by the colors of the American flag.

President Donald Trump reversed decades of U.S. policy on Wednesday and recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in defiance of warnings from around the world that the gesture risks creating further unrest in the Middle East.

In a speech at the White House, Trump said his administration would begin a process of moving the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which is expected to take years.
