Israel minister plans Trump train station at Western Wall

"Let us pray that the will to resume dialogue may prevail between the parties and that a negotiated solution can finally be reached, one that would allow the peaceful coexistence of two states within mutually agreed and internationally recognised borders", he said, referring to the Israelis and Palestinians.

The nation's transportation minister Israel Katz said Wednesday that the station, if approved and built, will be a thank you to Trump for his "courageous and historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel".

Israel's transportation minister is pushing ahead with a plan to dig a railway tunnel under Jerusalem's Old City, passing near sites holy to Jews, Christians and Muslims - and ending at the Western Wall with a station named after President Donald Trump. While no hints of what that peace offer may entail have been released, Capitol Hill observers have suggested that Kushner would reveal the contents of a new deal in early 2018. Al-Hurria station in the southern West Bank city of Hebron was closed "for content inciting violence and encouraging terrorism", an army spokeswoman said without providing further details.

In doing so, President Trump kept a campaign promise that he made in 2016, a promise also made by three other US presidents in recent decades, but which no prior president was willing to fulfill.

According to a report by the Agence France-Press, Israeli public radio cited Israeli diplomatic sources as saying that the Philippines was among the 10 countries considering moving its embassy to Jerusalem after talks with Israel.

Trump's announcement has set off weeks of clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces that have left 12 Palestinians dead.

A statement from Katz's office said the project was a national priority, meaning construction on the line would be expedited and even started within the next year.

However, as with many building projects in the holy city, excavation of the tunnel is likely to be greatly impeded by the discovery of any archaeological sites or ancient graves.
