The embassy will be located in the building that now houses the US Consulate General in Jerusalem’s Arnona neighborhood.“This is a great day for the people of Israel,” Netanyahu said in a statement issued by the Israel Embassy in Washington.“President Trump’s decision to move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem on the coming Independence Day follows his historic declaration in December to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.This decision will turn Israel’s 70th Independence Day into an even bigger celebration.Thank you President Trump for your leadership and friendship."Trump's decision to move the American embassy came on the heels of his December announcement that the United States officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital. The Palestinian response to the embassy relocation announcement was swift. The move showed a “determination to violate international law, destroy the two-state solution and provoke the feelings of the Palestinian people as well as of all Arabs, Muslims and Christians around the globe,” said Saeb Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator, in a February interview with Reuters.“Trump and his team have disqualified the US from being part of the solution between Israelis and Palestinians. Rather, the world now sees that they are part of the problem,” Erekat said.
