President Donald Trump said in September that Washington would recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as the “capital” of Israel, and now the regime’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the relocation of the US embassy to the occupied Palestinian city is a “must.”
“The US embassy must move here to Jerusalem [al-Quds],” Netanyahu said on Sunday, further claiming that “it would be good if the American embassy wasn’t the only one to move here.”
“I think that with time the majority of embassies will move to Jerusalem [al-Quds],” Netanyahu added.
It was September 25, 2016, when the current president of the United States, Trump, told Netanyahu that Washington would recognize the city as the “undivided capital” of Israel if he won the presidential election.
Palestinians warned Trump against such a move and a large group of US politicians followed suit and sounded the alarm over the potential recognition.
The issue of the relocation of the US embassy has sparked fears of a renewed outbreak of violence across the Middle East.
