Mnuchin: Trump Fulfills Promises With New Embassy in Israel

An estimated 35,000 Palestinians gathered on the edges of Gaza as the US Embassy opened in Jerusalem, fanning out along the fence in the largest demonstrations yet. "By moving our embassy to Jerusalem, we have shown the world once again that the United States can be trusted".

"We ought to encourage them to promote more and more peace and stability and peaceful negotiations", said Agil.

Earlier, Iran's parliament speaker Ali Larijani, a key establishment figure, said the USA had "entered a crisis of strategic decision-making that looks at the global arena immaturely and adventurously".

As Israel celebrates the American embassy moving to Jerusalem, Danny Danon, the Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations, discussed the violent Palestinian protests along the Gaza fence. Clashes in 2014 left more than 2,100 Palestinians and 70 Israelis dead.

The killings have drawn worldwide criticism, but the United States, which has angered the Palestinians and Arab powers by relocating its embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, has echoed Israel in accusing Gaza's ruling Hamas movement of instigating violence, an allegation it denies. Red cross of Palestine, in turn, said that a gunshot wound was discovered numerous protesters.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) echoed Graham in saying it was an "undeniable truth" that Jerusalem was the "undivided and eternal capital of Israel".

"The Security Council expresses its grave concern regarding recent developments in the Palestinian territory occupied by Israel since 1967, including East Jerusalem, particularly in the context of the peaceful protests in the Gaza Strip and the tragic loss of civilian lives", the draft statement read. The Trump administration has avoided that description, and noted that the city's final borders should be decided by the parties.

None of this takes away from the obvious fact that Jerusalem is, in reality the capital of Israel - home to its parliament, Supreme Court, government ministries and the residences of its president and prime minister.

He said the decision is merely a recognition of reality, and he said it provides a firmer foundation for peace negotiations. The resolution didn't name the US explicitly but expressed "deep regret" at any decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital - which US President Trump chose to do on December 6, 2017.

In London, the British government said it had no plans to move its Israel embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and said it disagreed with the United States decision to do so.
