Bulk223WASHINGTON (PNIC):-While it is not yet clear if Ivanka Trump, the US president’s Jewish daughter, will attend the US embassy opening in Jerusalem al-Quds, a report says that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will lead a delegation to the inauguration along with Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner who is another top Jewish figure in the White House.

Some 250 people are expected to attend the ceremony, Axios reported Sunday.

Around 40 US lawmakers and members of pro-Israel groups are among those traveling to Palestine to open the US embassy in Israel.

Meanwhile, Israeli officials are reportedly planning to make the best out of the inauguration to convince other countries to follow US in moving their embassies to al-Quds.

The US president finally broke with decades of US policy in December by announcing that the embassy in Israel would be relocated from Tel Aviv to the holy city.

Since US Congress ruled in 1995 that the embassy be relocated from Tel Aviv, every president has deferred the troublesome measure by issuing a six-month waiver.
