President Donald Trump will announce that the US recognises Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday, according to senior US officials.
He will also direct the state department to begin the process of moving the US embassy to the city.
The move comes as leaders from the Middle East and elsewhere warn Trump that the plan would have grave consequences.
