Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Dean Heller at Monday's embassy opening in Jerusalem.

The Palestinians, who want their own future state with its capital in east Jerusalem, have been outraged by Trump's shift from previous administrations' preference for keeping the US Embassy in Tel Aviv pending progress in peace efforts.

In a reflection of the deep sensitivities, dozens of countries - including Britain, France and Germany - skipped Sunday night's celebration at the Israeli Foreign Ministry.

A small interim embassy will open inside the existing USA consulate building in Jerusalem on Monday, while a larger site will be found later when the rest of the embassy moves from Tel Aviv.

You base peace on the foundations of truth, and the truth is that not only has Jerusalem been the capital of the Jewish people for millennia and the capital of our state from its inception, the truth is that under any peace agreement you could possibly imagine, Jerusalem will remain Israel's capital.

The border protests are building to a climax on May 15, the day Palestinians call the "Nakba" or "Catastrophe", marking the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in the conflict surrounding the creation of Israel in 1948.

"The IDF's preparation includes the additional deployment of a number of combat battalions to the Gaza border, special forces, intelligence collection units, and snipers".

The army said it was also reinforcing its troops in the West Bank with several combat battalions and intelligence units in case of possible unrest there as well.

United States President Donald Trump will address around 800 American and Israeli dignitaries at the ceremonial opening of the American embassy in Jerusalem by video tomorrow, the USA ambassador said.

"It's a recognition of reality", Bolton said on ABC's "This Week". He promised to move the American Embassy to Israel and he is doing so.

Gaza health facilities are preparing for mass casualties ahead of an anticipated large rally this week at Israel's border. Palestinians are getting ready for another massive protest Monday near the border with Israel.

Tens of thousands could try and burst through into Israel at protests this week.

"The Israel Defense Forces is determined to defend Israel's citizens and sovereignty against Hamas' attempts at terrorism undercover of violent riots", the leaflets read in Arabic.

They arrived in Israel on Sunday.

Like in previous years, road closures and barricades were set up on Sunday to heavily restrict Palestinians from accessing the road leading to Damascus Gate, one of the entrances to the Old City. Hamas has organized them mostly against an Israeli-Egyptian blockade in place since Hamas overran Gaza in 2007.

The Security Council has huffed and puffed about so-called "illegal" Israeli settlements including in East Jerusalem and called upon member states to withdraw their embassies from Jerusalem, but did so exclusively in the form of completely non-binding resolutions.
