Nikki Haley Announces Punishment For UN Members That Voted Against Jerusalem Move

Palestinian officials were not immediately available for comment on the new amendment, which passed by a vote of 64 to 52.

Israel's parliament on Tuesday gave final approval to legislation aimed at making it more hard for the government to hand the Palestinians parts of Jerusalem under any future peace deal.

Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December past year upended decades of USA foreign policy and countered an worldwide consensus that the fate of Jerusalem should be determined in negotiations.

The law approved on Tuesday determines that any ceding of lands considered by Israel to be part of Jerusalem would necessitate a two-thirds majority vote in parliament - 80 out of 120 members of the Knesset.

USA negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians have been frozen since 2014 but, if ever resumed, a special Israeli parliament majority to approve handing over parts of Jerusalem could complicate efforts to reach a peace accord.

A bid to revive Israeli-Palestinian negotiations led by the president's adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has so far shown no progress.

"We've ensured the unity of Jerusalem", Education Minister Naftali Bennett, who heads Jewish Home, said after the vote.

She also posted photos of her dear friend before cancer on her Instagram account so that people could see Heather before cancer. The last words of Heather Mosher's life were spent telling her husband how much she loved him on their wedding day.

The document also recognized the decades-old Israeli stance on Jerusalem, which calls the city the "eternal capital" of the Jewish state.

Opposition head Isaac Herzog said HaBayit HaYehudi was leading Israel "toward a awful disaster". It later annexed east Jerusalem in a move never recognised by the global community.

Trump's statement triggered wide protest in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, costing the lives of at least 13 Palestinians that were killed during clashes with Israeli security forces, according to Palestinian media.

The amendment came just days after the ruling Likud party's central committee called for the annexation of West Bank settlements.

Political commentators said the decision might bolster right-wing support for Netanyahu, who could seek a public mandate in an early election while he awaits possible criminal indictments against him on corruption suspicions.

Trump has long said he wants to broker Mideast peace, calling it "the ultimate deal".
