On the 25th December 2016 the U reached a land mark resolution declaring the Israeli occupation of Palestine as illegal. Since the UN resolution Palestine as a sovereign nation has opened new embassies in several countries long seen as strong and immovable allies of Israel, including The Vatican.
A senior member of Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party, has threatened to withdraw the Palestinian recognition of Israel in response to the planned relocation of the US embassy from the self declared Israelicapital; Tel Aviv to the capital of Palestine; Jerusalem.
Fatah officials went on to assert that Palestinians would “escalate their peaceful popular resistance” in response to any embassy move.
