The ministry also said that the PA holds Hungary, Romania and the Czech Republic responsible for blocking the resolution and that it would have consequences on all levels, "especially their relationship with the Arab and Islamic worlds".

"Tragically, the US administration has chosen to side with Israel's exclusivist claims over a city that has for centuries been sacred to all faiths", the general delegation of the Palestine Liberation Organisation to the United States said.

The Palestinian side has been disappointed by the Trump administration's move to transfer the embassy to Jerusalem.

Monday's ceremony - which takes place on the 70th anniversary of Israel declaring its independence - for now means moving the ambassador and a small staff to the US consular compound in the southern Jerusalem neighborhood of Arnona and rededicating the building as the American Embassy.

More than 1,000 Israeli police, including special patrol units and undercover officers, will be working near the event on Monday. The weekly protests along the Israel-Gaza border are expected to culminate on Monday in parallel with the celebrations in Jerusalem.

It'll launch on June 22 and will complete the trilogy that began with 2016's Not The Actual Events and 2017's Add Violence . We've chose to try something different that will also likely suck, but in a different way.

The Old City in east Jerusalem is home to key holy sites sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims.

"If you're not prepared to recognize that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and that's where the American Embassy should be, then you're operating on a completely different wavelength", Bolton told ABC's This Week. Peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians have been stalled for several years and Israeli settlements in the occupied territories have expanded.

Today, Israel continues to displace Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza and deny them fundamental human and civil rights.

A Palestinian man has been shot dead and dozens more wounded as tensions flare on the border between Gaza and Israel.

Speaking to journalists in the Old City, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat hailed the USA embassy move as the beginning of "a new world order".

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Trump was fulfilling a key campaign promise by moving the embassy. Only two countries, Guatemala and Paraguay, have said they will follow suit.

In an annual ritual, tens of thousands of Israelis marched through Jerusalem's Old City to mark the day.

"It's been the capital of our state for the past 70 years".

Later on Saturday, Israeli war planes destroyed an underground attack tunnel near the border that was being built by Hamas, the Islamist group that controls Gaza, to help militants cross into Israel, the military said.

Fifty-four Palestinians have been killed in protests and clashes since March 30 along the Gaza Strip's border with Israel.
