Ivanka Trump arrives in Israel ahead of USA embassy move

Ivanka Trump arrives in Israel ahead of USA embassy move

These are considered illegal under worldwide law, although Israel disputes this.

On May 14, the quiet residential neighborhood of Arnona in the south of Jerusalem will become the center of world attention. Revelers sang, danced and waved Israeli flags.

"I think we're gonna make progress", he told Pirro who is in Jerusalem for the embassy opening. Street-signs in Hebrew, Arabic and English have gone up.

On December 16, 2017, Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, in a move that triggered new violence in the region.

European foreign ministers, while opposed to the USA policy shift, have urged Abbas to give Washington's peace plan a chance.

Jerusalem Day commemorates Israel's capture of the eastern sector of the city from Jordan in the 1967 Mideast war. Ask every kid what's our capital: "It's Jerusalem", says Uriel Berenstein as he walks his dog in downtown (West) Jerusalem.

"Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people for the past 3,000 years", Netanyahu said.

Palestinian gunmen used tunnels to blindside Israeli forces during the 2014 Gaza war.

Others are less concerned about possible reactions.

"The crossing will remain closed until the damage caused by the riots are repaired and will reopen in accordance with a situation assessment", the Israeli military said.

"We look forward to celebrating Israel's 70th anniversary and the bright future ahead", she wrote, adding that they would also pray for peace as well as "the boundless potential of the future of the U.S. -Israel alliance". The complete relocation will take years, according to a USA official.

Monday is bound to be one of the worst days in office for Abbas since the militant Hamas movement seized Gaza in a 2007 takeover. Thousands of police officers have been deployed throughout the city to maintain order, secure the embassy and direct traffic. Israeli soldiers fired live bullets and tear gas volleys from the other side of the border fence. "Jerusalem today is more divided, less sustainable, more contested than ever before". Previous recipients of the award are also President George W. Bush, Prince Albert II of Monaco, President Rosen Plevneliev of Bulgaria and recently also President Jimmy Morales of Guatemala, for declaring he will move the embassy to Jerusalem. "The United States has no greater partner than Israel", he said.

While the Trump administration is believed to be working on a new peace plan, it has given mixed signals on its plans for Jerusalem.

Saeb Erekat of the Palestinian Liberation Organization's Negotiations Affairs Department disputes that.

The club announced in a statement that "The chairmen of the club, the owner Eli Tabib and the executive manager Eli Ohana have chose to add to the club's title the name of the American President who made history, and from now on will be called Beitar Trump Jerusalem".

US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan will lead the delegation that will include Mr Trump's daughter Ivanka, her husband and senior White House aide Jared Kushner, and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Following Trump's move, they said the U.S. can not be considered as a fair peace broker in the Middle East. "They are repeating history". "It's the right thing to do", a smiling Netanyahu told the jubilant crowd. Both Israel and neighbouring Palestine claim the holy city as their capital - one of many issues which have fueled their decades-long conflict - and the USA had until then refrained from recognising either claim for fear of sparking violence and derailing peace talks.

Israel immediately annexed east Jerusalem - home to the city's most sensitive Jewish, Muslim and Christian holy sites - in a move that has not received global recognition.

The fate of the ancient city has been a critical and unresolved issue in past US-brokered peace talks.

The opening coincides with renewed tension between Israel and Iran, that could turn into a full-blown conflict. "It is still unclear how long it will take to fix and replace the necessary parts".

Palestinian health officials said a man and a teenager were killed by Israeli fire on Friday. Palestinians say it's a land grab.
