Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala says it is the right time to move his country’s embassy to Jerusalem.

“I am convinced that this would be a desirable step at the present time,” he tweets. “I intend to discuss the specific course of action in this situation with my coalition partners.”

Fiala was supposed to host Netanyahu today in Prague, but the Hamas attacks forced a postponement of the planned government-to-government meetings.
