“Accurately speaking, the US is committed to an apartheid regime whose existence depends on racism, occupation, terror & aggression, to name a few. The partnership America is cherishing has built on destruction, bloodshed in #Palestine & beyond. The alliance does make world insecure,” the ministry tweeted on Friday.
On Thursday, Pompeo pointed to the relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to the occupied Jerusalem (al-Quds) at President Donald Trump's direction and said the move was a magnificent tribute to the deep and historic friendship between Washington and Tel Aviv.
“The US is committed to Israel. We’re committed to our alliance, and we are committed to building a more peaceful, more prosperous future together,” he wrote.
The US embassy relocation took place on May 14, 2018 on the eve of the 70th anniversary of Nakba Day (the Day of Catastrophe). On this day back in 1948, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forcibly evicted from their homeland and Israel proclaimed existence.
