The mayor of El Salvador’s capital gave the keys to the city to the Palestinian ambassador for Central America. This week’s move by Carlos Rivas Zamora in San Salvador caused an uproar among Jewish leaders and Israeli officials in El Salvador. In addition, a Palestine Square was inaugurated near an Israel Square in the city. Israeli officials said they would work to get a map removed on the Palestinian monument that has the words “Palestine, Holy Land” over the State of Israel.
