On May 14, 2018, the U.S. Embassy will be officially opened in Jerusalem following the December 2017 announcement by U.S. President Donald Trump, recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The transition of the consulate to the embassy will coincide with a number of other important dates and events:

- The date selected will coincide with the 70th anniversary of the U.S. government’s recognition of Israel as an independent   state.
- The anniversary date is conversely recognized by Palestinians as the Nakba, or the dispersal from Galilee.
- The 45-day Gazan “March of Return” protests—which have thus far been marred with violence between Israeli security forces and Palestinian protestors—are scheduled to end May 15.
- May 15 also marks the start of Ramadan in the year 2018.
- It also coincides with recent engagement between Israeli Defense Forces and Iranian military resources in Syria along the border with the Golan Heights.
- The combined events will likely spur various celebrations and protests. Patterns indicate that likely areas for unrest include U.S. and Israeli diplomatic missions, areas of disputed religious significance and border areas with Gaza and the   West Bank/Judea and Samaria.
