Iraq demands US backtrack on Jerusalem, militia says troops a target Of trump Jerusalem in the Iraqi foreign Ministry had summoned the US Ambassador

On Wednesday, Donald Trump officially announced his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, where he plans to relocate the US Embassy.

"In addition to concerns stemming from terrorism, travelers should be alert to the possibility of political unrest, violence, demonstrations, and criminal activities when traveling", it said, adding that USA government facilities are on a heightened state of alert".

The alert, posted on December 6, is a "worldwide caution" that asks USA citizens to be on high-alert when traveling.

As Matt Lee, a diplomatic reporter for the Associated Press, noted on Twitter, such a warning was issued in 2003 after the start of the Iraq War when the State Department believed an attack against U.S. citizens by Al Qaeda was imminent. That advisory, which cautions that "the possibility of random violence continues to exist and can happen without warning", is still in effect.

The warning went on to urge American citizens to be aware of local developments and remain in contact with United States embassies or consulates.

The U.S. embassy in Jordan also posted its own security message, stating that it has suspended most services, limited the movement of its employees and their families, and would keep the children of embassy workers home from school on Thursday.

The State Department issued a worldwide warning for American citizens overseas following President Donald Trump's announcement on Jerusalem.

The US Ambassador was summoned to Iraq for making "protest" from the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Iraq, because of the unprecedented decision by trump, which he recognized Israel's capital Jerusalem.

The Palestinians want the eastern sector as the capital of their future state.

When asked Tuesday whether the president is concerned about violence, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said, "A number of things have been looked at that have been weighed into the president's decision".

Terming the USA decision "naive" and "dangerous" for global peace, the separatists said these unilateral and anti-Muslim decisions were bound to deteriorate and damage the already fragile peace and tranquillity of the world.

The U.S embassy has been located in Tel Aviv for seven decades.
