The Times of Israel has reported that the Trump transition team “has begun exploring the logistics of moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv, and checking into sites for its intended new location,” adding that the site being considered was formerly the location of the Allenby Barracks, the site of the British army’s Jerusalem garrison during the Mandate. However, research by Walid Khalidi shows the site being considered is Palestinian private property stolen from its owners. Khalidi says the move would recklessly violate U.S. and international law.
