Palestinians ask UN court to revoke US Jerusalem embassy move

Palestinians ask UN court to revoke US Jerusalem embassy movePalestinian foreign minister Riyad al-Maliki said Saturday the Palestinians have petitioned the UN’s top court, alleging that the US inauguration of an embassy in Jerusalem was illegal. The Palestinians have filed a lawsuit at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) “for violating international law by moving its embassy in Israel to the occupied city of Jerusalem”, he said, quoted by the official Palestinian news agency WAFA. In December, US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, despite Palestinian claims on part of the city and breaking with longstanding US policy.

Netanyahu tests Israeli fast train from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv

Netanyahu tests Israeli fast train from Jerusalem to Tel AvivPrime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tested Israel’s new high-speed train from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv on Thursday, but much work remains before it is fully operational. Netanyahu joined Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz on the ride from a newly built train station in Jerusalem’s city centre to Ben Gurion International Airport near Tel Aviv. Travelling at speeds up to 160 kilometres (100 miles) per hour, the ride from central Jerusalem to the airport will take 21 minutes — half the time it takes to drive there in normal traffic, though congestion often makes the trip much longer.
