US President Donald Trump has wrapped up a two-day visit to Israel and the Occupied Territories where he met Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
Speaking to a group of Israelis in occupied Jerusalem on Tuesday, Trump said he is "personally committed to helping Israelis and Palestinians achieve a peace agreement".
During his talk at the Israel Museum, Trump placed the blame for the lack of a reached settlement between Israelis and Palestinians at the door of the Palestinians.
He said that his meetings earlier in the day with Abbas led him to believe that "the Palestinians are ready to reach for peace".
Palestinians across the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip staged protests for days during his visit, including most recently on Tuesday where they also called for solidarity with the thousands of Palestinian prisoners in Israel jails who have begun their sixth week of a hunger strike.
