    Protests have broken out in the Gaza Strip in response to US President Donald Trump's expected decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, as Palestinian leaders called for three days of rage against the move.

    Hundreds of Palestinians took to the streets in Gaza city on Wednesday, carrying banners denouncing Trump, hours ahead of his impending declaration that would also see the US embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

    The declaration, which is expected at 18:00 GMT on Wednesday, comes amid global condemnation of the decision.

    Al Jazeera's Rosiland Jordan reports on how the location of the US embassy in Israel has long been a contentious matter in Washington DC.
