Khalid bin Hilal al-Mawali, Chairman of Majlis Al Shura on Monday condemned the United States decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem.

“We condemn the unilateral decision of moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem,” al Mawali said during the Shura’s 20th ordinary session.

He pointed out that the decision “affects the legal status of the city under occupation and undermines the efforts of peace process in the Middle East and the two state solution.”

On Monday, the US formally opened its embassy in Jerusalem amid deadly protests in the Gaza Strip, which resulted in the death of more than 50 Palestinians and wounded more than a thousand.
