Palestinian FM: Palestine to Ask the UN to Issue a Resolution on Trump’s al-Quds Decision

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki says he will seek the United Nations Security Council’s resolution over US President Donald Trump’s recent provocative decision on recognizing al-Quds as Israel’s “capital.”

“The United States’ decision is illegal and illegitimate. It shows how biased and hostile it is and that it has positioned itself as a party to the conflict rather than as a mediator,” the Palestinian top diplomat told a news conference held ahead of the Arab foreign ministers’ meeting in the Egyptian capital of Cairo on Saturday.

Rights Group Accuses UK of Complicity in Saudi Crimes in Yemen

Al-Quds Will Turn into Zionist Regime's Graveyard, Says IRGC Cmdr.

The chief commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says al-Quds will turn into a graveyard for the Israeli regime.

Speaking at a meeting with a number of IRGC personnel in Tehran on Saturday, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said a recent decision by US President Donald Trump to recognize al-Quds as Israel’s “capital” was aimed at destroying al-Aqsa Mosque.

"The US and the Zionist regime [of Israel] have committed their most historic folly vis-à-vis al-Quds, and with the grace of God, al-Quds will become a graveyard for the fake regime of Israel," he added.

Jafari urged Muslims to immediately stand up against the "vicious plot” or it would be too late.
