AMMAN/OCCUPIED JERUSALEM —AlGahd— Multiple Arab, Israeli and foreign news media outlets have confirmed the posting of road signs, across the occupied city of Jerusalem, pointing directions to the intended location of the United States of America Embassy, which is scheduled to launch in the occupied city on May 14, 2018.

According to AlJazeera English, the Jerusalem's city hall confirmed the installation.

Mayor Nir Barkat placed the first signs on Monday in the southern Jerusalem neighbourhood where the embassy is to be located, a picture sent by the Mayor’s office shows.

The signs read "US Embassy" in English, Hebrew and Arabic.

All over the city, Reuters confirms at least three signs were placed on main roads today, Monday.

Upon the launch of the Embassy, it is rumoured that US President Donald Trump will attend, AlJazeera claims.

The embassy move comes after Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital last year, heightening Israeli-Palestinian tensions.

Israel claims the entire city as its eternal capital. The Palestinians seek the eastern sector as capital of their hoped-for state.
