Trump also spoke out about the attack later that day while visiting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the Israel Museum.

U.S. President Donald Trump has visited the Middle East during his first overseas trip since he took office in January.

Trump, for his part, stressed the need to forge a historic peace deal, without mentioning any reference to the two-state solution or to an independent Palestinian state. "But with determination, compromise, and the belief that peace is possible, Israelis and Palestinians can make a deal".

Wednesday's announcement brings the number of attack-related arrests to four, following an arrest announced Tuesday. Speaking after a meeting of the government's COBRA crisis committee, May said "the public should remain vigilant".

He also commended the importance of the holding of the Arab-Islamic-American Summit in the Saudi capital on Sunday. Abbas's Fatah party is at sharp odds with the Hamas, which is in power in Gaza, leaving no unified Palestinian position on peace.

"I'm not at peace with the whole arms race in the Middle East", he added. However, most journalists have reported that the meeting is about the confirmation of a military weapons deal between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, in which the USA government would sell about 110 million dollars worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia. The problem is not between us and Judaism. The objective of Trump's trip, the official said, was "to do a lot of listening, build very strong relationships with all the different people, not just the parties involved, . and try to create a lot of momentum and optimism around the prospect for peace".

"The Palestinians are ready to reach for peace" and "Benjamin Netanyahu wants peace", said Trump.

In general, Trump markedly avoided all of the thorny issues that have stymied peace efforts for decades, such as the "settlements" - i.e. United against terrorism, united against Iran, friends with the Sunni Arab states, friends with Israel, working for peace. The re-election of Iran's President Hassan Rouhani is something the United States can not ignore whatever the kingdom says.

President Abbas also offered his condolences to the "British Prime Minister and the British people".
