Jordan urges European Union to recognise East Jerusalem as capital of Palestine

Trump's move reversed decades of United States policy, upsetting the Arab world and Western allies.

The U.S. says it has the right to decide where to put its embassy, and Haley said Tuesday the decision simply recognized "reality".

Listening to Judge Jeanine Pirro on Fox News rave about this was highly concerning because of her messianic account of Trump and her attempt to make the movement of the embassy a feat of prophetic fulfilment and hastening some kind of apocalyptic end-time.

I've read my Bible cover to cover several times, I have a PhD in NT, I've been to Jerusalem, and let me tell you that moving the United States embassy to Jerusalem is to the apocalypse what Kale is to Texas BBQ.

South Africa and Turkey recalled their ambassadors to Israel, and Turkey expelled the Israeli ambassador to Ankara.

"I look forward to assessing with you the practical ways. that we can advance this friendship and this alliance", Netanyahu said.

Israel says the military has delivered eight trucks full of humanitarian aid and medical supplies to the Gaza Strip, where Israeli troops firing from across the border killed almost 60 Palestinians at mass border protests on Monday.

In Geneva, the United Nations human rights office said Israel has repeatedly violated global norms by using deadly live fire to repel protesters.

At a border protest encampment east of Gaza City, Palestinian factions, including Hamas and Islamic Jihad, urged people to take part in mass rallies on Friday.

Palestinian demonstrators gather during a protest against US embassy move to Jerusalem and ahead of the 70th anniversary of Nakba, at the Israel-Gaza border in the southern Gaza Strip May 14, 2018.

No Israeli soldiers were wounded in either case.

There have been numerous calls for an independent investigation into the deaths, with Britain, Germany and Switzerland among those supporting such action.

"India is deeply concerned with continuing tensions on the border between Gaza strip and Israel where more than 50 Palestinian nationals lost their lives and thousands injured on 14th of May".

Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat lashed out at Guatemala, saying its government had "chosen to stand on the wrong side of history".

"The Israeli Government must stop such use of excessive force against unarmed civilians, including children, and respect the basic human rights of Palestinians as well as worldwide law", the ministry added.

Former Guatemalan foreign minister Gabriel Orellana has said Morales's embassy move has the effect of banishing his country "to the fringes of the UN".

The status of Jerusalem al-Quds is the thorniest issue in the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He described Trump's move as the "slap of the century", and said the USA could no longer be considered a neutral broker in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks now - or in the future.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has called for intensified protests.
