Israel welcomes USA delegation ahead of Jerusalem embassy move

Ivanka Trump Has 'Great Joy' Going to Jerusalem Embassy Opening on Monday

Mr Trump has been criticised for handing his ally, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a political victory without insisting on any Israeli concessions that might mollify Palestinians and help revive the moribund peace process.

PLO Executive Committee Member Hanan Ashrawi called on the United States to rescind its "disastrous and irresponsible decision" to move the U.S. embassy to occupied Jerusalem and to desist from further provocative and illegal decisions and moves aimed to preempt the outcome of permanent status issues.

The move tomorrow of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, a city under belligerent occupation, has only inflamed Palestinian grievances - and a sense that the West is still conspiring in their dispossession.

The Palestinian side has been disappointed by the Trump administration's move to transfer the embassy to Jerusalem.

The ambassador said staff at the Tel Aviv mission had just marked its last day as an embassy and some of them will turn up for work tomorrow at the Jerusalem embassy, which will host an opening ceremony later that day.

Israeli army warplanes on Saturday struck targets in the blockaded Gaza Strip, the army announced.

Israel has portrayed the movement as a "terrorist" ploy by Hamas and as a security threat to its civilians, pointing out attempts to damage and breach the fence.

Abbas wants east Jerusalem to be the capital of a Palestinian state that would include the other war-won territories.

"We look forward to celebrating Israel's 70th anniversary and the bright future ahead".

Israel says it is protecting a sovereign border and accuses Hamas of using the unrest to plan and carry out attacks. "Despite American and Israeli efforts to violate the status quo and the legal status of occupied Jerusalem, we will remain steadfast and resilient in the face of the belligerent occupier and continue the nonviolent struggle for freedom, independence and dignity". This date marks when approximately 760,000 Palestinians, estimated today to number about 5.5 million with their descendants, fled or were driven from their homes.

Palestinian health officials said a man and a teenager were killed by Israeli fire on Friday.

Palestinian security forces loyal to the Palestinian Authority stand at the gate of the Kerem Shalom crossing, the main passage point for goods entering Gaza, in the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah, on May 13, after it was closed by Israeli authorities for repairs.

"President Trump promised to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and he did so".

No other countries have their embassies in Jerusalem with diplomats kept an hour away in Tel Aviv - so as not to show support for rival claims to the Holy City.
