Israel
Tel Aviv (Jerusalem has limited recognition) Both Israel and the State of Palestine claim Jerusalem as their capital and its unresolved status is one of the core questions at the heart of the Israel-Palestine conflict. Most countries maintain their embassies in Tel Aviv as a result of their non-recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Non-recognition is a legal term used in international law to apply to any situation established in violation of the League of Nations Pact (resolution 11 March 1932). UN Security Council resolutions 476 and 478 (1980) assert that Israel is in violation of the Pact, having unlawfully occupied the eastern part of Jerusalem since 1967. Such an occupation precludes Israel from claiming sovereignty on the city. The US recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December 2017, a significant but rare exception to the decades of international non-recognition consensus on the highly contested city.
