Hamas Says ‘Israel’ Has No Land to Claim ‘Capital’, the World Denounces Trump’s Move
Local Editor

Commenting on US President Donald Trump's expected announcement to declare his recognition occupied al-Quds as the Zionist entity's ‘capital', the Palestinian resistance movement of Hamas stressed that ‘Israel' has "no land" and naturally no right to designate ‘a capital' city.

Palestinian al-Quds

Hamas Spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri tweeted the remark on Wednesday, shortly after Trump reportedly "informed" Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas of his intention to relocate the American embassy from Tel Aviv to occupied al-Quds.

Trump is expected to declare that the US would recognize al-Quds as the Zionist "capital" in a speech later on Wednesday, in what would most likely be a moment of euphoria for ‘Israeli' officials.

But the Palestinians, and the rest of the world, are opposed to such recognition. The Palestinians want al-Quds, the site of Islam's third holiest site, as part of a future Palestinian state.

People, meanwhile, rallied in the city of Bethlehem in the south of the ‘Israeli'-occupied West Bank to protest the prospect, setting fire to pictures of Trump and ‘Israeli' Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas also warned Trump of the "dangerous consequences of such a decision."

In parallel, various world leaders also raised concern about the controversial American plan.

Most recently, the United Nations [UN] envoy for the Middle East negotiation process said on Wednesday that al-Quds' future status had to be negotiated between ‘Israelis' and Palestinians and warned of the repercussions of any action over the city.

China, for its part, warned that Trump's plan could fuel tensions in the region.
Also in reaction, Pope Francis called for al-Quds' "status quo" to be respected.
The pontiff expressed his hope for "peace and prosperity" for the Palestinian people during a scheduled meeting with a Palestinian delegation of religious and intellectual leaders.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson also said he was concerned about reports that Trump would recognize al-Quds as ‘Israel's' "capital."

The Kremlin said Russia was concerned that the conflict between ‘Israel' and the Palestinian authorities could be aggravated further by the embassy plan.

In the harshest reaction so far, Turkey threatened to cut ties with the Zionist entity if the US carried out the recognition.

Additionally, Germany's foreign minister warned that any US move toward such recognition would be dangerous and could deepen the Middle East conflict.

For his part, French President Emmanuel Macron said he was concerned about the potential relocation during a phone call with Trump.

The European Union warned of the "serious repercussions" of the prospect as well.
