The Palestinian government has stressed that the transfer of the US embassy is a violation of Vienna Convention (1967), according to which the embassy should be located in the host country, however the Jerusalem is a controversial area that is under the Israeli army forceful occupation.

The Palestinian government also demanded that legal action should be taken against the US for violating the international law of diplomacy and to ask all countries including America that have broken the treaty to move their embassies back to Tel Aviv along with a ban against forming new embassies in Jerusalem. 

Let us remind you that last year in December, US President Donald Trump acknowledged Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and ordered the US embassy to move to the occupied Jerusalem that was imposed in May, 2018. Also after the United States, some other countries also moved their embassies to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. 

Palestine’s Action Against Israel 

In late May 2018, Palestine’s Foreign Minister also contacted the International Criminal Court for opening investigations on Israeli war crimes.
