USA delegation flees Palestinian mob in Bethlehem”

An event attended by USA diplomats in Bethlehem was cut short on Tuesday because an uncontrollable Palestinian mob stormed the venue.

U.S. diplomats who were visiting the Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Tuesday had to cut their event short after violent Palestinian protesters stormed the venue in protest against U.S. President Donald Trump's declaration regarding Jerusalem's status and decision to cut aid to UNRWA.

Samir Hazboun, head of the Palestinian Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce, told AFP that a training session for local business people about digital commerce with an American expert and a delegation from the United States consulate in Jerusalem was in session when the incident occurred. The event aimed to educate local businesses on the benefits of social media, and an American expert had been scheduled to speak.

Demonstrators held up a sign with the American flag and pictures of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, President Trump, and Vice President Pence. "Though no one was hurt, the objective was clearly intimidation".

The angry protesters, who were objecting to US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, also threw tomatoes at the delegation's vehicle as they left, a video posted online showed. That move was met with anger across the occupied West Bank and Gaza, with Palestinians complaining that it denied their claim to the city, the eastern half of which they hope to see as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

According to a report Monday night by The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the PA activists, led by representatives of Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party, held the mock trial in absentia for the two American leaders in the Aida quarter of Bethlehem.
