US Embassy in Jerusalem courtyard dedicated to Kushner

US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman dedicates the courtyard of the American Embassy in Jerusalem to Jared Kushner, who led US President Donald Trump’s Middle East policies.

Friedman notes that dedicating portions of American embassies to individuals is “a rarity.”

The move comes toward the end of the Trump administration and just before Kushner takes part in a joint Israeli-American delegation to Morocco following a normalization agreement between Jerusalem and Rabat, which was brokered by the US.

Asked if any other normalization deals are on the table, Kushner says he is “very hopeful that there are more peace deals to be had.”
