May 14 ceremonial moving of the American Embassy to Jerusalem was sprovotsirovat bloodshed.
Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales arrived in Israel to take part in the opening ceremony of the country's embassy in Jerusalem, the Guatemalan government said in a press release on Tuesday.
Paraguay is scheduled to open a Jerusalem embassy on May 21 with its president, Horacio Cartes, due to be in attendance. They were scheduled to meet after the ceremony with their entourages. Leaders in the European Union and the United Nations urged Israel to refrain from using deadly force.
"It's not a coincidence that Guatemala is opening its embassy in Jerusalem right among the first, you are always among the first", said Netanyahu. "Do not approach the security fence nor participate in the Hamas display that is putting you in risk".
"This is a sovereign decision and as a sovereign decision, we recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel". At least 60 Palestinians have been killed protesting in Gaza. Two more died on Tuesday.
Morales said his country, Israel and the United States "share friendship, courage and loyalty". The outlet says a couple of other countries are considering a similar move. The opening of the U.S. Embassy on Monday was met with mass protests on the Gaza border, where Israeli troops killed almost 60 Palestinians, triggering a wave of worldwide condemnation.
In siding squarely with Israel, Washington put distance between itself and its European allies for the second time in a week, after angering France, Germany and others last Tuesday by abandoning an worldwide nuclear deal with Iran.
In his remarks, Netanyahu highlighted the friendly relationship that both countries have shared since 1948 when Guatemala became the second country, after the USA, to recognize the State of Israel.
Netanyahu thanked Trump for "having the courage to keep your promises".
Palestinians claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state, and see the U.S. move as backing Israeli control over the whole of the city.
Trump's move broke with decades of worldwide consensus that Jerusalem's status must be negotiated between the parties, drawing near global condemnation. He insists the decision has no impact on future negotiations on the city's final borders.
Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December outraged Palestinians, who said the United States could no longer serve as an honest broker in any peace process.
Honduras is expected to follow Guatemala soon with opening an embassy in Jerusalem.
Throughout the day, Gaza protesters set tires ablaze, sending thick plumes of black smoke into the air, and hurled firebombs and stones toward Israeli troops across the border.
But to both Israel and the Palestinians, the American gesture is widely seen as siding with Israel on the most sensitive issue in their longstanding conflict. "Jerusalem must remain a city that brings people of all faiths together", he said in a speech.
Unlike the Obama administration which had a strained relationship with Netanyahu, Trump has firmly supported the Israeli leader. The U.S. said it chose the date to coincide with the 70th anniversary of Israel's establishment.
The new embassy will temporarily operate from an upgraded, existing USA consulate building, until a decision is made on a permanent location.
