Israeli Regime to Double Troops Deployments ahead of US Embassy Move

Israeli Regime to Double Troops Deployments ahead of US Embassy Move

Alwaght- The Israeli regime is set to double the number of its military forces around the besieged Gaza Strip and in occupied West Bank ahead of Trump's controversial decision to move US embassy to al-Quds (Jerusalem).

An Israeli army spokesperson on Saturday said that three additional infantry brigades will be deployed ahead of the embassy's opening, two surrounding the Gaza Strip and one in the West Bank.

He added that the fresh additions will be nearly twice as many as the number of troops currently deployed.

The spokesperson noted that the number of troops in Jerusalem will not change, as responding to protests is the responsibility of the police.

US President Donald Trump has announced that he will not be taking part in the opening ceremony in al-Quds on Monday, but his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner will be present.

Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians are expected to hold massive protests along the fence between the Gaza Strip and the occupied territories on the day of the US embassy relocation. The rally, which will cap several weeks of deadly protests in the coastal enclave, coincides with the 70th anniversary of Nakba Day (Day of Catastrophe), when Israel was created in 1948.

At least 52 unarmed Palestinian protesters have been killed by Israeli live fire since the protests began on March 30.

Earlier in the day, thousands of protesters in Jordan, Turkey and Indonesia staged rallies to condemn the US decision to relocate its Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Thousands of protesters in Jordan, Turkey and Indonesia protest against the upcoming US embassy move to al-Quds.

Diplomats from many countries have reportedly declined to attend a reception ceremony for the embassy relocation ceremony in the occupied Jerusalem al-Quds in a show of anger at President Donald Trump’s recognition of the city as Israel’s capital. The reception ceremony is scheduled to be held a day before the official relocation on Monday.

The Israeli Haaretz newspaper reported that only 30 out of 86 foreign envoys serving in Israeli regime had accepted Tel Aviv’s invitation to the Sunday reception. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had invited the entire foreign diplomatic corps to the event.

Most world countries have reportedly declined to attend an event next week marking the opening of the American embassy in al-Quds.

Last December, Trump announced his decision to recognize al-Quds as Israeli regime’s so-called capital and relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to al-Quds, breaking with decades of American policy.

 

His decision infuriated the Palestinians, who declared that Washington could no longer play a role as a mediator in the so-called Middle East peace process. It also sparked outrage across the Muslim world and even among Washington's Arab allies.

 

On December 21, the United Nations General Assembly voted overwhelmingly in favor of a resolution that calls on the US to withdraw its controversial recognition of Jerusalem al-Quds as the Israeli capital.

 

The Israeli regime has faced international criticism over its use of live fire, with the United Nations and the European Union calling for an independent investigation. Tel Aviv has rejected the call.
