U.S. transferring 50 employees to Jerusalem embassy

Sings reading U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem

Trump's decision to move the US Embassy has been controversial, amid fears that the move could scupper hopes for peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Rights groups say the use of potentially lethal force against unarmed protesters is unlawful. Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, said the tunnel was being tracked for weeks and had been destroyed just a few meters (feet) inside Gaza. Israel's parliament, the Knesset, and much of its government is in Jerusalem.

Since March 30, 49 Palestinian protesters have been killed and more than 1,800 wounded.

But the embassy move has its opponents.

"People will be coming back to work as the embassy branch of the Jerusalem embassy, and I think we're all very happy and excited to be participating in such a historic event", Friedman said. Other major powers worry that the USA move could now inflame Palestinian unrest in the occupied West Bank and on the Gaza Strip border, where Israel reinforced troops in anticipation of the embassy opening.

"Palestinians must continue protesting peacefully to show the entire world and the Israeli occupation how civilized they are and that they will not concede their legitimate rights".

Tens of thousands of Palestinians are expected to gather along the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel on Monday to protest the embassy opening.

The U.S. Embassy opening on Monday culminates almost six months of preparations.

And he added that the USA hoped the embassy move would encourage peace talks between Israel and its neighbors.

JERUSALEM-The U.S. opening this week of its relocated embassy to Israel here fulfills a campaign promise of President Donald Trump's while dialing up tension around another administration goal: peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

The United States is opening its new embassy in Jerusalem on Monday.

A reception on Sunday will include members of a delegation led by President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka, his senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner and Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin.

Mr Trump announced the move past year, officially recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital, a decision that was not welcomed in many other parts of the world.

He also thanked Guatemalan foreign minister Polanco for her country's decision to open its embassy in Jerusalem two days after the U.S. And he thanked the President of Paraguay, who is expected in Jerusalem later this month to open his country's embassy as well.

Attending the Foreign Ministry gathering were representatives from Hungary, Romania and the Czech Republic, but none from western European Union states - suggesting a rift within the bloc over Trump's Jerusalem move.
