White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah is expected to hold a briefing at 1:30 p.m. ET today. Addressing the opening ceremony of the new American Embassy in Jerusalem, Benjamin Netanyahu called it a “glorious” day.
Netanyahu thanked President Donald Trump for showing the “courage” to keep a key campaign promise and says relations with the U.S. have never been stronger. He says Mideast peace must be founded on what he says is the “truth” recognized by the U.S.
“The truth is that Jerusalem has been and always will be the capital of the Jewish people, the capital of the Jewish state,” he said. Israeli fire has also killed dozens of Palestinians during mass protests along the Gaza border on Monday.
