US opens new delegation in Jerusalem as dozens are killed in Gaza
Washington( CNN) The US officially relocated its delegation in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Monday, formally upending decades of American foreign policy in a move that was met with confrontations and complains along the Israeli-Gaza border.
The violence could extend Tuesday, when Palestinians tag what they call the “Nakba, ” or Catastrophe, in recognition of the more than 700,000 Palestinians “whos” either driven from or fled their residences during the Arab-Israeli war that accompanied the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948.
On Monday, which marked the 70 th anniversary of the founding of the state of Israel, US and Israeli leaders applauded the embassy move as a sign of the enduring relationship between both countries and of US trustworthiness. American officials said it could create an honest foundation for an eventual peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians.
