U.S. to Move Israel Embassy to Jerusalem
The United States plans to move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. It’s slated to happen on May 14, which is the same date in 1948 when Israel proclaimed independence.
Reuters reports a U.S. official said most embassy employees will stay in Tel Aviv, so it could take some time before the change is fully made.
President Donald Trump said last December the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, which upset Palestinians and their supporters since they see the eastern part of Jerusalem as their capital.
