United States embassy to move to Jerusalem in May

Speaking after talks Monday between European Union and Arab League foreign ministers, European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said that the "special status and character of the city must be preserved". "This is a recognition of Jerusalem not just in words, but in deeds", he stated.

East Jerusalem was captured by Israel from Jordan during the June 1967 Six Day War, after which it was put under Israeli law and administration and integrated into a single, Israeli city through the extension of municipal boundaries.

Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) Executive Committee Secretary General Saeb Erekat denounced the USA decision, calling it a "flagrant violation of global law and the agreements between the Palestinian Authority and Israel ... and it had destroyed the two-state solution".

Mogherini expressed the EU's readiness to "offer the redeployment of our mission EUBAM Rafah (the European Union Border Assistance Mission in Rafah)", a Palestinian city and refugee camp in the southern Gaza Strip and to "support even more the economic development of Gaza and obviously also increase our humanitarian aid with the specific focus on hospitals in Gaza".

Israeli police closed entrances to the old city in order to prevent the two ministers and Jerusalem's Fatah secretary from reaching the school.

Furthermore, Israeli lawmakers have proposed a bill that would allow the regime to expropriate land in Jerusalem al-Quds sold by churches to private real estate companies in recent years. The facility will function as the official embassy while arrangements are made to find a permanent location.

Israel's leadership warmly welcomed the Trump administration's announcement that the U.S. embassy will be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem this coming May, coinciding with Israel's 70th Independence Day, while leaders in the Arab world expressed anger and threatened repercussions.
