Guatemala opens embassy in Jerusalem after USA move

Guatemala has opened its embassy in Jerusalem, following in the footsteps of the United States, which inaugurated its embassy in the city two days prior, in a move that has triggered global condemnation.
May 14 ceremonial moving of the American Embassy to Jerusalem was sprovotsirovat bloodshed. Global powers including the UK, France and Russian Federation had previously slammed the USA decision to move their embassy, while 128 nations backed a UN resolution rejecting the White House recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "You deserve a better future", the leaflets said.
Morales and the Guatemalan ministers of foreign affairs, defense and economy arrived in Israel earlier in the week to prepare for the event, which closely followed the official opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem. Over 60 protestors, including several children, were killed and more than 2,700 others were injured in clashes with Israeli forces.
Israel captured east Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war and later annexed it in a move not recognised internationally.
Mass protests were held in response across the Israel-Gaza border on Monday, continuing the almost non-stop demonstrations that have been going on since late March.
The bloodshed drew calls for restraint from some countries, including France and Britain, and stronger criticism from others, with regional power Turkey calling it "a massacre".
The latter has blamed the Hamas Palestinian militant group for the erupted violence by organizing provocations. "Hamas is intentionally and cynically provoking this response", White House spokesman Raj Shah told reporters. "Jerusalem must remain a city that brings people of all faiths together", he said in a speech. The U.S. said it chose the date to coincide with the 70th anniversary of Israel's establishment. A USA official, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the deployments bolstered security at US embassies including Israel, Jordan and Turkey. "The fact that they have used the Bible and Christianity as an excuse to move the embassy to Jerusalem in contradiction to the position of the Holy See, 13 churches in Jerusalem as well as from a number of Christian religious leaders worldwide, highlights the fundamentalist nature of the Israeli regime and its allies such as the Guatemalan government", said Erekat.
