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

Trump announced plans on Wednesday to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, in addition to plans to move the US capital from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
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 text of the document says Nujaba is "an affiliated faction" of the US-designated foreign terrorist organization Kata'ib Hezbollah, which also fights with the PMF. The bill claims Kaabi took part in "multiple mortar and rocket attacks" on the Green Zone in Baghdad in 2008.

Trump said this marks the start of a "new approach" to solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
In a "security message" posted on the consulate's website, the USA government said it published the Israel travel warning because of "widespread calls for demonstrations" beginning Wednesday in Jerusalem and the West Bank.
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".
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said he warned Trump of the "dangerous consequences" of such a move on security, the peace process, and stability in the region.
"The US administration has to backtrack on this decision to stop any unsafe escalation that would fuel extremism and create conditions favorable to terrorism", it said.
