Palestine withdraws ambassadors from four countries of Europe

Guatemala will inaugurate its embassy in Jerusalem on Wednesday - with its President Jimmy Morales attending - hot on the heels of the USA, while the government in Asuncion said Paraguay's embassy would switch to Jerusalem at the end of this month.

Following in the footsteps of the United States, Guatemala opened its embassy in Jerusalem Wednesday. "You were the second country to recognise Israel", Netanyahu said at the ceremony, referring to its founding in 1948.

The European Union officially voted against the transfer of the U.S. Embassy from tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Israel said all 86 countries with diplomatic missions in Israel were invited to the event, and 33 accepted.

The Palestinians said they consider the participation a "grave violation of worldwide law".

Meanwhile, Guatemala inaugurated its Israel Embassy in Jerusalem on Wednesday, becoming the first country to follow in the footsteps of the U.S.

"We are not surprised that a president that has objected to United Nations investigations into corruption and abuses of power has chose to further violate worldwide resolutions". "And we'd also like to see Israel Streets in Guatemala". Mohammad Momani, the Minister of State for Media Affairs, called the move "an irresponsible step" and that all "peace-loving countries should support the two-state solution based on the worldwide legitimacy, which calls on the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on pre-June 4, 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital".

Palestinian leaders said by relocating the embassy the United States had created incitement and instability in the region and abrogated its role as a peace mediator.

The ministry said the ambassadors' presence at the inauguration ceremony was a "major violation of worldwide law and of numerous United Nations resolutions".

Since the Hamas-led protests began on March 30, more than 110 Palestinians have been killed and some 2,500 have been wounded by live fire, according to the Palestinian health ministry.
