Guatemala Inaugurates Embassy In Jerusalem After US

US President's daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Senior White House Advisor Jared Kushner arrive for the controversial inauguration of the US embassy in Jerusalem

The Palestinian Authority today recalled its envoys to Romania, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Austria after their ambassadors attended a reception to mark the opening of the United States embassy in Jerusalem.

"This is the beginning of something extraordinary, or I would say, the re-beginning of something extraordinary, which is the relationship between Guatemala and Israel", he said. "You were the second country to recognize Israel", Netanyahu said referring to the country's establishment in 1948.

Guatemala previously had an embassy in Jerusalem, the first country in the world to open an embassy in the city in 1956. Paraguay has also announced that it would move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem by the end of May.

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

The embassy move was accompanied by mass protests and clashes along the Gaza border that saw Israeli forces kill some 60 Palestinians.

More ENC Schools Join Growing List Of Districts Closing May 16
Closing on Wednesday could mean the school would have to schedule a make-up day on a Saturday or even on Memorial Day, Brown said. The NCAE has always been an ally of legislative Democrats and regarded with suspicion by the state's powerful Republican leaders.

He said that peace-loving nations should support the two-state solution agreed upon by the worldwide community, which requires the establishment of a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Israel regards all of the city, including the eastern sector it annexed after the 1967 conflict, as its capital.

The Arab League and the French government called the embassy relocations illegal and a contravention of United Nations Security Council resolutions involving Israeli occupation of Palestinian land.

The European Union officially voted against the transfer of the U.S. Embassy from tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

On Wednesday, a day after expelling Israel's ambassador in response to the Gaza deaths, Turkey ordered the Israeli consul general in Istanbul to return home.
