Israel deports two Turks detained in Jerusalem

Only eight countries stood with the United States in voting no to the resolution held in the UN General Assembly, among them Guatemala and fellow Central American country Honduras.

"It's a shameful and illegal act that goes totally against the wishes of church leaders in Jerusalem" and violates a non-binding UN General Assembly resolution condemning the USA move, the ministry said in a statement.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and other top Turkish officials have remained at the forefront of worldwide opposition to the USA move.

"Though Congress passed a law in 1995 ordering the U.S. Embassy to be moved to Jerusalem, successive presidents - including Trump, earlier this year - have issued a series of six-month waivers to forestall the move". Netanyahu said on Twitter, "It is just the beginning and it is important". "We discussed the excellent relations that we have had as nations since Guatemala supported the creation of the state of Israel", Morales wrote on his official Facebook account.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday hailed the decision, saying other nations would also follow Washington's controversial lead.

"God bless both our countries - Israel and Guatemala!"

Vladimir Putin thanks President Trump to help Central Intelligence Agency in stop terrorist attacks
President Vladimir Putin phoned Donald Trump to thank him for the information, the White House and Kremlin confirmed. The leaders' relationship is complicated by ongoing investigations into the Trump campaign's ties to Moscow.

"It's a shameful and illegal act that goes totally against the wishes of church leaders in Jerusalem" and of a non-binding U.N. General Assembly resolution condemning the USA recognition, the Palestinian Foreign Ministry said in a statement, the French press agency, AFP, reported. Adding that, "the state of Palestine considers this as a flagrant act of hostility against the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people and worldwide law".

Israel seized the eastern part of Jerusalem in the 1967 Six Day War and later annexed it in a move not recognised by the worldwide community.

Trump's December 6 announcement has triggered weeks of clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces, which have left 12 Palestinians dead.

In 1967, Israel took over East Jerusalem from Jordan and declared the whole city as its "eternal indivisible capital" in 1980.

Mr Trump did not set any timetable for moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and neither did Guatemalan President, Jimmy Morales.
