US opens new Embassy in Jerusalem as dozens die in Gaza clashes


"Israel is a sovereign nation with the right like every other sovereign nation to determine its own capital, yet for many years, we failed to acknowledge the obvious, the plain reality that Israel's capital is Jerusalem," Trump said in the pre-recorded remarks.


Politicians and dignitaries, including Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, watched as US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin unveiled the US seal, turning what was formally the consulate building into the Embassy.
Speaking at the ceremony, Netanyahu hailed the alliance between America and Israel as "stronger than ever," and described Monday as "a day that will be engraved in our national memory for generations."
