"We declare our recognition of the State of Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital, and we call on states to recognize the State of Palestine and occupied East Jerusalem as its capital", read the Muslim leaders' final statement of the summit.
The Muslim world and USA allies in Europe have denounced the move, saying that it is detrimental to the ongoing peace process through which Palestinians hope to make East Jerusalem the capital of their potential state. Protests have erupted across the Muslim world from Indonesia to Mauritania and among diaspora communities in Europe. Last week, two Palestinians were killed in an Israeli strike.
His announcement marked the end of decades of official USA neutrality on the issue.
In fact, clashes broke out again Friday, leading to the death of two Palestinians in the Gaza Strip amid protests of Trump's recognition, the Associated Press reported. Both the heads of Egypt's Coptic Church and the famed Azhar School of Islamic Learning have rejected meetings with US Vice President Mike Pence in the aftermath of the announcement.
Police said the fourth Palestinian was fatally shot after stabbing an Israeli border police officer near a checkpoint on the outskirts of Ramallah.
He called for "justice in the face of policies of force [and] the recognition of the status quo", while calling the U.S. decision on Jerusalem an act of "rewarding an occupier". On Friday, Erdogan vowed to have Trump's decision "annulled" by the UN. The decision was considered "an indication of Washington's withdrawal from its role as a sponsor of peace".
He will meet with European Union representative to the so-called Middle East "Quartet", Fernando Gentilini, the White House official said, in a bid to rescue one of Trump's "highest priorities" of a Mideast peace deal.
A poll conducted after Trump's announcement by the respected Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research found 45 per cent of Palestinians supported a violent popular uprising, up from 35 per cent three months previously.
In the West Bank, an Israeli policeman was wounded in a Palestinian knife-attack, Israeli police say.
