US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman

"I thank President Trump or making this historic moment come to fruition", he said in a statement released by his office.

In related news, Paraguay announced that it would move its embassy to Jerusalem by the end of the month, in a ceremony to be attended by President Horacio Cartes.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was not on the list.

Trump made recognizing Jerusalem as the capital a campaign vow, breaking with previous presidents who believed the controversial move would kill any peace negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis.

The suspect was injured and medics on the scene were called to treat the man, Watts said. "Thank you for your continued prayers". Brian DeHart said they used standard and infrared cameras to locate the suspect in the apartment through a window.

The move prompted worldwide condemnation and triggered a wave of protests in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The signs were placed near a building of the United States consulate south of Jerusalem, which appears to be the embassy's headquarters, as it will be officially moved on May 14. The Palestinians, on the other hand, see the eastern sector as the capital of their future state and oppose any Israeli attempt to extend sovereignty.

According to the Guardian, police and Israeli Defense Forces have increased security sweeps and patrols in the southern Jerusalem neighborhood expected to house the temporary American embassy while construction is in progress.

The new embassy is scheduled to open it's doors on Monday, May 14.
