Palestinians and pro-Palestine activists worldwide continued their protests against US American President Donald Trump's recognition that Jerusalem is Israel's capital.
An AFP correspondent in Awkar outside the capital Beirut said several hundred pro-Palestinian demonstrators had gathered near the United States embassy, located in the area.
Jordan's King Abdullah also issued a statement, saying "that the decision will have serious implications that will undermine efforts to resume the peace process and will provoke Muslims and Christians alike", according to Reuters.

Before the anticipated protest, the security forces have blocked all roads leading to the embassy and tightened security measures in surrounding areas on Sunday morning.
Protesters burned United States and Israeli flags.
"Most scattered. Four people dragged away a woman who seemed hit very badly with tear gas, and was unable to walk".
Waving Palestinian flags and holding up pictures of Jerusalem, they expressed anger at the "betrayal" by Arab governments perceived to have backed Trump's move.
The head of Lebanon's powerful Hezbollah movement, Hassan Nasrallah, has called for a mass demonstration against Trump's decision on Monday in the group's stronghold in the southern Beirut suburbs.
Pope Francis on Sunday called for leaders to commit to avoiding outbreaks of further violence.
Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Malki called Trump's decision "illegal and illegitimate and null and void legally and politically", saying there would be no formal communication with USA officials.
A group of demonstrators set alight an effigy of the USA president, whose decision has up-ended decades of American diplomacy and an global consensus to leave the status of Jerusalem to be resolved in negotiations. The foreign ministers of the 22-member states of the Arab League met for an emergency meeting at their headquarters in Cairo on Saturday.
An global consensus has long held that Jerusalem's final status should be determined through negotiations.
The Trump administration has said it is still committed to reviving Palestinian-Israeli talks that collapsed in 2014, but jettisoning old policies is necessary to break the deadlock.
