The visit prompted harsh criticism from all across the world and the US, Israel’s closest ally, expressed grave worry about the current situation.

State Department spokesman Ned Price said, “We’re deeply concerned by any unilateral actions that have the potential to exacerbate tensions precisely because we want to see the opposite happen.”
