Zarif on the Opening of US Embassy: A ’Day of Great Shame’
Local Editor

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif reacted to the opening of the US Embassy in Palestine's occupied holy city of al-Quds on Twitter, lambasting what US President Donald Trump earlier called a "big day for "Israel"."

Zarif lashed out at the US, Arab "collaborators" following the festive opening of the US Embassy and a violent climax of confrontations on the Gaza Strip's border between Palestinian protesters and the "Israeli" military.

""Israeli" regime massacres countless Palestinians in cold blood as they protest in world's largest open air prison. Meanwhile, Trump celebrates move of US illegal embassy and his Arab collaborators move to divert attention. A day of great shame," Zarif wrote on his Twitter account.

Earlier in the day the US Embassy was opened in the occupied holy city with an official ceremony, headlined by White House advisors, Trump's daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law Jared Kushner, along with top "Israeli" officials.

Meanwhile, Trump, who decided to move the embassy from Tel Aviv as he acknowledged al-Quds as the Zionist entity's so-called capital, skipped the occasion, timed to the 70th anniversary of the Zionist entity's existence.

However, he addressed the crowd via teleconference and sent his congratulations via Twitter.

The ceremony coincided with bloody rallies on the border with the Gaza Strip, where up to 15,000 Palestinians have been protest against the relocation after "Israel" was founded in 1948.

So far, dozens of people have been martyred and thousands others injured, with the death toll expected to rise further.
