Hamas has called for new intifada against Israel in response to Donald Trump’s decision to recognise the Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.
“This Zionist policy supported by the US cannot be confronted unless we ignite a new intifada,” said Ismail Haniyeh, the Islamist militant group’s leader, during a speech in Gaza.
He added: “The US decision is an aggression, a declaration of war on us, on the best Muslim and Christian shrines in the heart of Palestine, Jerusalem.”
After US President Donald Trump’s recognizing Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel, there is silence and a state of waiting in the Muslim neighborhoods of this town.
there are expectations among everyone in the city that clashes may ensue.
The Arab districts’ shops, which are usually very lively at this hour, are closed now. People are concerned that their shops may be damaged as a result of possible clashes.
The video cameras of numerous media outlets are at Damascus Gate.
Israeli police are all around the city.
