Terrorist attack, Palestinian riots in Jerusalem as Trump visits shrines

A Palestinian Monday attacked an IDF checkpoint in the Arab Abu Dis suburb of Jerusalem. He was shot before he hurt anyone. Riots erupted in some Palestinian neighborhoods of the city while visiting President Donald Trump and the first lady were touring the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in the Old City. The couple was  greeted formally by prelates of the Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Armenian churches. They next proceeded on foot to the Western Wall, where President Trump donned a skullcap. The first US president to visit this Jewish shrine, Trump gave up a prayer with his hand on the old stones. He placed a message in a cranny of the ancient wall, which was built more than 2,000 years ago to enclose the site of the Second Jewish Temple. Ivanka Kushner then offered a prayer of her own at the Western Wall.
