  1. Palestine accused Paraguay of aiding Israel’s “annexation” of Jerusalem, after it became the third nation to move its embassy to the city. Palestinian officials are calling on Arab states to cut ties with anyone making the move.
    Member of Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Executive Committee Hanan Ashrawi denounced Paraguay’s decision to move its embassy from Tel Aviv, describing the relocation as a "a deliberate and flagrant violation of international law and legitimacy resolutions." She added that “taking such a provocative and irresponsible step” makes Paraguay complicit in Israel’s attempt to “consolidate [its] military occupation” and “annex Jerusalem.”
