JERUSALEM, ISRAEL - MAY 09: The Dome of the Rock at the Al-Aqsa mosque compound stands in the Old City on May 9, 2018 in Jerusalem, Israel. In a controversial move, the United States is to move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14. Jerusalem's Israeli-annexed eastern sector has been long sought for a future Palestinian capital and the move is viewed by Palestinians as a U.S. breach of long-standing promises to help negotiate a fair arrangement for the contested city. On the following day, Palestinians are marking the "nakba,"or catastrophe, which commemorates the anniversary of their mass uprooting during the 1948 war over Israel's creation.
