The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs released a statement on Saturday strongly condemning the governments of Hungary, Romania and the Czech Republic for blocking the release of a statement by the European Union (EU) that rejected United States plans to officially open its Israeli embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, May 14th.

"People have been working literally around the clock in getting ready for our opening dedication ceremony on Monday".

Further attacks were promised against any Palestinian who might have the audacity to approach or damage the much hated border fence.

Only Romania, Paraguay and Guatemala have announced similar moves since Trump's decision. Palestinian organizers called them the "Great March of Return".

Witnesses said Israeli forces on the other side of the fence had added reinforcements, including cement slabs, as protective cover.

On Monday, road signs for the new embassy in English, Arabic and Hebrew began going up in Jerusalem.

That Apple is considering a triple camera setup is entirely certain, but we are not entirely inclined to believe this report. CNET has tested the Huawei P20 Pro's cameras and found that its third camera helps it zoom in further than other phones.

"President Trump is starting a prophetic process by moving the American Embassy to Jerusalem".

Friedman said around 800 people were expected for the ceremony, he added, explaining that in addition to the previously announced USA presidential delegation, a "healthy number" of American lawmakers were also set to attend.

Deifallah, who is unemployed, said he is not afraid to die.

Al-Ayyam said in a report by its correspondent in Jerusalem and quoting "a European source" that the European countries are not going to attend the U.S. embassy opening ceremonies. The U.S. expects some 800 people to attend the event, including a large congressional delegation and the presidential delegation led by Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan. The Hamas-encouraged demonstrations are ostensibly aimed to protest the decade-long Israeli-Egyptian blockade, imposed after the terror group seized power in Gaza in 2007, and to assert Palestinian demands for millions to "return" to lost properties in what is now Israel. Jerusalem streets were busy, Muslim prayers on Friday in the Old City went off without a hitch, and the city wound down on Friday evening, quietly in both the east and the west. Trump's announcement was a green light for the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to launch a barrage of missile strikes on Iranian targets in neighboring Syria and to continue the assault on the Palestinian protesters.

US officials have insisted that the embassy opening in Jerusalem doesn't change longstanding USA policy and that future peace negotiations should still decide the final status of Jerusalem. It's very unsafe. It's sending the signal that the United States wants to confront Iran, and that's a signal that the Israelis and the Saudis are all too eager to hear."On Friday, the White House issued a statement condemning Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps".
