The Iranian-backed terror organization Hamas called for a ‘Day of Rage’ this week in response to President Trump’s expected announcement naming Jerusalem as the ‘Capital of Israel,’ urging Palestinians to protest the decision “with all available means.”
According to Fox News, the American-designated terror group released a statement, saying Trump’s move crossed a “red line” with Muslims and called on “Palestinian youth” in the West Bank to fight back.
“We call on the people of Palestine to declare ‘rage day’ on Friday against Israel, denying the U.S. plan to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital,” said the official statement in Arabic.
“The youth and the Palestinian resistance in the West Bank need to respond with all means available to the U.S. decision that harms our Jerusalem. Jerusalem is a red line and the resistance will not allow any desecration of it,” it added.
President Trump is expected to announce Wednesday his decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Israeli state; fulfilling a campaign promise and upending decades of American foreign policy regarding the Middle East peace process.
