The U.S. Embassy in Israel has changed its Twitter handle to reflect the move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem next week.

The embassy wrote on Twitter Thursday that the @usembassyta account had been changed to “@USEmbassyJerusalem.” The correct account handle is @USEmbassyjlm.

The embassy has yet to change its account’s backdrop from the Tel Aviv coastline to Jerusalem, saying it is “still looking for a suitable header photo.”

The Trump administration is fulfilling a campaign promise to move the embassy to Jerusalem, de facto recognition of the city as Israel’s capital. The decision has enraged Palestinians, who want east Jerusalem as capital of their future state.

The embassy transfer ceremony is slated for Monday.
