Palestine: Leaders plan response to US Jerusalem move

December 7, 2017 6:12 pm Categorised in:

Palestinian leaders are seeking to devise a unified plan of action against the US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniya has said the move is a “war declaration against Palestinians”, and called for a new Intifada, or uprising.

Haniya said in a speech in Gaza City on Thursday that US President Donald Trump’s recognition “killed” the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

There have also been protests in Gaza against the move.

Al Jazeera’s Bernard Smith reports from Gaza.
