Gaza6Dec9GAZA (PNIC):-Head of Hamas’s political bureau Ismail Haneyya has said that the Palestinian people will start a fresh intifada (uprising) in response to US president Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

In a speech, Haneyya affirmed that the Palestinian people would rise up against the Israeli occupation and defend their Jerusalem.

“As we are facing this new equation and such defining political turn resulting from this decision (of Trump), we are demanded to take decisions, formulate policies and develop strategies to confront this new conspiracy against Jerusalem and Palestine,” Haneyya stated.

“In view of such blatant and blind bias from the US administration and this diabolical alliance that allows itself to decide the fate of Jerusalem and its status, we must be as clear as the sun and state our position unequivocally and unambiguously,” Haneyya said.

“Jerusalem is united with no east or west. It is a Palestinian, Arab and Islamic city and the capital of the State of Palestine,” he emphasized.

“I say today that Palestine is also a one contiguous and united land extending from the sea to the river and cannot be divided into two states or entities. Palestine and Jerusalem are ours and we do not recognize any legitimacy conferred upon the occupation.”

“There is no Israel on the land of Palestine in order for it to have a capital,” the Hamas official underlined.
