The Palestinians have gathered to demonstrate over the US embassy relocation to Jerusalem. The US Embassy will be opened in Jerusalem at 4pm local time. More than 1,000 Israeli police officers will be working near the event, which is expected to be attended by a US delegation represented by presidential advisers Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner.

US President Donald Trump formally announced the United States recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on December 6, 2017. The move has triggered an escalatino of the Palestinian-Israeli tensions.
