ISRAEL ON EDGE: Jerusalem Braces for VIOLENCE as US Opens Embassy

US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman

Mr Trump says he is making good on US legislation and presidential pledges dating back decades.

Trump announced the move in December 2017, saying he was making good on USA legislation and presidential pledges, dating back decades, to support Israel's designation of Jerusalem as its capital.

The United States will be sending a delegation comprised of some 300 dignitaries and officials, with rumors circulating that Trump may himself be in attendance.

Instead, Secretary of State John Sullivan will lead the presidential delegation for the historic event, the White House announced in a statement Monday.

Recall, 6 December 2017, the US President, Donald trump has officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and ordered the transfer of the American Embassy.

Since March 30, Palestinians have been partaking in a stint of consecutive weekly protests along the Gaza border that are set to climax on May 14, embassy opening day.

Municipal workers erected signposts reading "US Embassy" in Hebrew, Arabic and English around the site, now a US consular building, in the city's Arnona neighbourhood.

"How could I ever be confident of that?" the former New York City mayor and USA attorney said Sunday on ABC's "This Week". Giuliani also said he wasn't sure whether Cohen had paid off any other women for Trump but indicated it was possible.

On Monday, in preparation for the move, the US Embassy in Tel Aviv changed its Twitter handle to @usembassyjlm, announcing the change with a tweet.

The move prompted global condemnation and triggered a wave of protests in the occupied Palestinian territories.

A restaurateur, she lives in the overwhelmingly Jewish neighbourhood of Arnona. The Palestinians, on the other hand, see the eastern sector as the capital of their future state and oppose any Israeli attempt to extend sovereignty.

The status of Jerusalem is among the most contentious in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Earlier, US Embassy road signs were erected in Jerusalem on Monday a week before Washington was due to relocate its mission, a move that has infuriated the Arab and Muslim worlds.

Trump said last week that he "may" go to Jerusalem for the opening himself.

The Palestinian authorities have called on the diplomatic corps, global non-governmental organizations and religious authorities to boycott the opening of the USA embassy in Jerusalem.
