New US embassy location in Jerusalem cuts through Armistice Line
New US embassy to be opened on 1949 Armistice Line, which has long been violated by occupation of East Jerusalem.
The new US embassy in Jerusalem is located on the border of the 1949 Armistice Line, which has long been violated by the occupation of East Jerusalem.
