Relations between Palestine and the United States reached an all-time low when Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and ordered to move the USA embassy from Tel Aviv on December 6, 2017.

The United States will be sending a delegation comprised of some 300 dignitaries and officials, with rumors circulating that Trump may himself be in attendance.

Instead, the U.S. delegation to the May 14 event will include U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, as well as Pres. Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and daughter Ivanka Trump, who work as advisers to the president in the White House.

According to eyewitnesses, three signs were placed on one of the Jerusalem roads in English, Hebrew and Arabic.

Earlier this week, Amnesty International UK also condemned the launch of the race right next to East Jerusalem al-Quds where Palestinians regularly face house demolitions, illegal settlement building and restrictions of movement.

The first road signs directing people to the upcoming U.S. Embassy officially went up in Jerusalem.

Britain had joined 13 other UNSC member states to vote in favour of a resolution calling for Donald Trump to rescind his declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, showing the depth of global opposition to the move.

"We are thrilled that the American Embassy is coming here, finally", said Ruthann Nahum, 64, a New Yorker who moved to Israel 35 years ago. "Jerusalem is our capital", she said.

A new road sign indicating the way to the new USA embassy in Jerusalem is set up on May 7, 2018. The Palestinians seek the eastern sector as capital of their hoped-for state.

"Paraguay President Horacio Cartes plans to come to Israel by the end of the month to open an embassy in Jerusalem", Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said in a statement.
