Israel is welcoming Guatemala's decision to follow the United States in planning to transfer its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Israel's Foreign Ministry has praised a decision by the president of Guatemala for the Central American country to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, saying the announcement represented "true friendship" between the two countries.
Donald Trump earlier this month angered the Arab world after he announced that the USA recognised Jerusalem- the ancient city considered sacred by Muslims, Christians, and Jews- as the capital of Israel, and that the country will move its embassy in the holy city.
A Palestinian died on Saturday after being wounded by Israeli fire during a protest on the Gaza border against USA recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the health ministry said. Netanyahu said on Twitter, "It is just the beginning and it is important".
Last Thursday, the UN General Assembly overwhelmingly adopted a resolution - by a vote of 128 to 9 - calling on Trump to reverse the decision.
In a Facebook post, Morales said that he had a discussion with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu- after the talks he made a decision to instruct the foreign ministry to move the embassy to Jerusalem. "God bless both our countries - Israel and Guatemala!"
Meanwhile, Palestinian authorities denounced the decision. Adding that, "the state of Palestine considers this as a flagrant act of hostility against the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people and global law".
The resolution passed by the General Assembly declared the USA action on Jerusalem "null and void".
Israelis see the whole of the city as their undivided capital while the Palestinians view the east as the capital of their future state.
Israel seized the eastern part of Jerusalem in the 1967 Six Day War and later annexed it in a move not recognised by the global community.
Trump's announcement on December 6 sparked anger in the Palestinian territories and across the Muslim world.
Kızılırmak said they had no knowledge of when and why they would be deported, as Turkey's Embassy to Tel Aviv and Consulate to Jerusalem are monitoring the issue.
