"The last time the @statedept issued a "Worldwide Caution" because of a United States policy decision was March 2003 at the start of the Iraq war", he said on Twitter.

Yesterday, US President, Donald trump is recognized as the capital of Israel is Jerusalem, not tel Aviv. "We caution against the unsafe repercussions of this decision on the stability of the region and the world", a government statement reads.

"The US administration has to backtrack on this decision to stop any unsafe escalation that would fuel extremism and create conditions favourable to terrorism", reads the statement.

While the administration is now officially recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the embassy move will be delayed for "logistical reasons".

The US, which is leading a large-scale operation against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) in Iraq, has about 5,200 troops in the country, according to the latest statement from the US Defense Department. Though made up of Iraqis, it is loyal to Iran and is helping Tehran create a supply route through Iraq to Damascus.

It fights under the umbrella of the Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF), a mostly Iranian-backed coalition of Shia militias that played a role in the battle against IS.

The front page of one of Lebanon's papers declared "Death to America" and the Palestinian militant group Hamas called for an uprising to make Trump "regret" his decision, The Hill reported. The PMF is government sanctioned and formally reports to Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's office. The president admitted the move will cause dissent, but says it could help resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict.

The department on Tuesday urged USA citizens to avoid Jerusalem's Old City and the West Bank over fears of protests and violent reaction to the president's announcement.

"This is our Qibla-I-Awwal (the first direction of prayer) and no Muslim can ever accept it (Jerusalem) as the capital of the Zionist state of Israel".
