US opens embassy in Jerusalem
Jerusalem May 14 (IANS) The United States opened its embassy in Jerusalem on Monday amid bloodshed along the Gaza border that left 41 Palestinians dead by Israeli military gunfire.
An American delegation including President Donald Trump s son-in-law Jared Kushner daughter Ivanka Trump and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin attended the ceremony.
Trump addressed the ceremony via a pre-recorded video saying that the Jerusalem move had been a "long time coming".
"Israel is a sovereign nation with the right to determine its own capital but for many years we failed to recognise the obvious."
He also said the US remained "committed to facilitating a lasting peace agreement".
The death toll at the Gaza Strip s fence with Israel was the largest in a single day since the Israeli Army fought a conflict with Hamas in 2014.
Among those killed were a 12-year-old and a 14-year-old according to Gaza s Health Ministry of health who said scores more were injured.
