Hamas leader calls for new intifada, Bibi urges world to follow Trump’s example

Sputnik News– The statement appeared following US President Donald Trump’s decision to reconsider the status of Jerusalem and to begin preparations for the transfer of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv.

“We should call for and we should work on launching an intifada in the face of the Zionist enemy,” Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said in a speech in Gaza.

Meanwhile, Israeli PM Netanyahu has expressed his confidence that “many” nations would follow the US in recognizing Jerusalem as Israeli capital.

The city of Jerusalem is claimed by both Israelis and Palestinians as their capital, though the international community doesn’t recognize either of these claims and all foreign embassies to Israel are located in Tel Aviv.
