Arab League Assistant Secretary-General Ambassador, Hossam Al Zaki, said the Arab League would convene Thursday to "discuss the emergence of a unified Arab stance against the crimes against the Palestinian people, as well as to confront the US decision to transfer its embassy to the city of Jerusalem".

The European Union opposed the U.S. move of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The rightful owner of the guitar has been a major point of contention throughout the two years of divorce proceedings. The guitar is estimated to be worth millions of dollars and is said to be only one of 300 made at the time.

Israel occupied the West Bank and east Jerusalem in 1967 and later annexed east Jerusalem in a move never recognised by the global community.

Palestinian leaders said by relocating the embassy the United States had created incitement and instability in the region and abrogated its role as a peace mediator.

On the day the United States inaugurated its own embassy in Jerusalem, Israeli gunfire killed 60 Palestinians during the Gaza border protests.

In December, President Donald Trump announced he would move the USA embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and that he would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the country.

Morales said Israel and Guatemala have a "deep friendship", hoping that other countries will follow the same move.
