Palestinian teen wounded in Gaza clashes dies: Ministry

Sings reading U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem

Sings reading U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem

Jerusalem was partitioned after the Mideast war over Israel's 1948 creation, with Israel controlling the west and Jordan the east, including major shrines of Islam, Judaism and Christianity.

The 1-kilometer tunnel was only meters away from the border fence near the Erez crossing into Israel and a short distance away from a kibbutz, said the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) spokesman.

The new United States embassy in Israel is set to open in Jerusalem on Monday amid heightened tensions in the region.

As their bus drove past the compound, the journalists took photos of workers planting flowers in the area and paired Israeli and American flags fluttering from electricity poles.

A small group of dovish Israelis protested the march.

An Israeli man confronts a Palestinian woman at Damascus gate in Jerusalem on Sunday as Israeli settlers celebrate Jerusalem Day in the Old City.

In April, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told Israeli journalist Barak Ravid: "In the last several decades, the Palestinian leadership has missed one opportunity after the other and rejected all the peace proposals it was given".

On May 14, in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Armon HaNatziv /East Talpiyot, United States Embassy will officially open.

Nationalist Israelis view the day as a holiday marking the unification of the city under Israeli control.

Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs is holding a reception late Sunday afternoon for the U.S. delegation to the transfer of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, at the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem.

Pompeo tells "Fox News Sunday" that the USA still hopes to be able to "achieve a successful outcome" to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

On 6 December, 2017, Trump declared Jerusalem, both East and West, as the capital of Israel, and began to transfer its embassy there, which ignited anger in the Palestinian territories, while eliciting as well Arab, Islamic, and global condemnation. Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its capital. Most countries have kept their embassies in Tel Aviv. "Should there be someday a Palestinian state, if they want part of Jerusalem, someday they'll find an agreement, but for now, Jerusalem is the capital of Israel", he adds. The weekly protests along the Israel-Gaza border are expected to culminate on Monday in parallel with the celebrations in Jerusalem.

Gaza's ruling Hamas movement is urging tens of thousands of people to join Monday's protest - which is meant to coincide with the opening of the new U.S. Embassy in contested Jerusalem.

Friedman in the past has been a supporter of Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. "The administration is firmly committed to pursuing a lasting and comprehensive peace between Israel and the Palestinians that promises a brighter future for both".

"We will place a million martyrs on this land until, God willing, we liberate it", Mahmoud al-Zahar, a co-founder of Hamas, vowed this weekend.

The agenda will include talks over the controversial USA embassy move, scheduled to take place on Monday.

The European Union has voiced strong objections to the embassy move, and most EU ambassadors in Israel will be boycotting the event.
