Visiting a Palestinian hospital on the Mt. of Olives unaccompanied by Israeli officials would undermine Israeli sovereignty.
U.S. President Joe Biden is considering visiting eastern Jerusalem unaccompanied by Israeli officials in June, Israel’s Kan News reported.
No U.S. president has ever visited any area of Jerusalem unaccompanied by Israeli officials and such a visit would undermine Israeli sovereignty over the eastern part of the city.
According to the report, Biden would pay a visit to the Al Makassed Hospital, which is located on the Mount of Olives. It is believed that Biden will announce the renewal of U.S. financing for Palestinian health care in eastern Jerusalem which Trump had slashed.
