Israeli military has announced the deployment of troops to reinforce security in the West Bank.

This followed US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital on Wednesday.

“Upon the conclusion of the general staff’s situation assessment, it was decided that a number of battalions will reinforce in the area of (the West Bank), as well as combat intelligence and territorial defence,” the military said in a statement.

“In addition, more standby forces were defined, as part of the (military’s) readiness to possible developments.”
