Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital - a timeline
I hope there won't be, but I think that this decision is historic, important and dramatic.
Israel's police spokesman, Micky Rosenfeld, said officers were assessing the level of security needed for theopening, including deploying CCTV cameras and guards in the Jerusalem neighbourhood of Arnona, where the current United States consulate is being retrofitted to become the embassy.
President Donald Trump won't be part of the high-ranking delegation attending the U.S. Embassy opening in Jerusalem next week, the White House said Monday.
The statement announcing Trump's decision listed the embassy's opening in "Jerusalem, Israel", the first known time the disputed city has been clearly listed as Israeli territory in an official US statement after Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December.
However, Hadashot news reported Monday that the country's incoming president, Mario Abdo Benítez - a member of Cartes's conservative Colorado party - will join the incumbent for the opening of the Jerusalem embassy.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said in wake of Trump's announcement that the USA had effectively disqualified itself from peace process.
USA ambassador to Israel David Friedman, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, the president's daughter and son-in-law Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, and special representative for global negotiations Jason Greenblatt will also attend.
The Palestinian Authority Sports Authority has condemned the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain as "shameful" for their participation in the global Giro d'Italia bike race that for the first time this weeks was held in Israel. Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its "eternal and undivided" capital which it captured from Jordan in the Six Day War in 1967.
We will remind, the Palestinian March of Return scheduled for may 14, the day of the opening of the Embassy. The Palestinians seek the eastern sector as capital of their hoped-for state. "Jerusalem is our capital", she said.
"This (embassy) move is not only illegal but will also thwart the achievement of a just and lasting peace between two sovereign and democratic states on the 1967 borders, Israel and Palestine living side by side in peace and security", Palestinian negotiator, Saeb Erekat, said in a statement. Other U.S. presidents have promised the embassy move but never acted on it because of its politically charged symbolism.
