“With tomatoes and eggs, the expulsion of an official American delegation from the Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce.”

The images show a confrontation at the Bethlehem chamber of commerce on Jan. 30, 2018, in which Palestinian activists disrupted a workshop held by an American delegation and attacked the delegation’s vehicles as they left. The protest came in response to the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel - On Dec. 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and instructed the State Department to begin preparations to transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump added that the final borders of Jerusalem will be determined during negotiations.
