Iran: Trump’s Al-Quds Move to Spark another Intifada
Local Editor

Iran strongly condemned US President Donald Trump's decision to move his country's embassy in ‘Israel' to al-Quds, saying the measure will ignite a new Palestinian Intifada [uprising].

In a Wednesday night statement, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said Washington's recognition of al-Quds as ‘Israel's' ‘capital' is a "blatant violation of international resolutions."

"The Islamic Republic of Iran has always stressed that the most important reason behind instability and insecurity in the Middle East is [Israel's] continued occupation, the US' relentless support for the Zionist regime, and denying the oppressed Palestinian nation the right to establish an independent state with al-Quds as it capital," the statement said.

Describing the US move as "provocative and unwise," the Iranian Foreign Ministry further warned that "recognizing al-Quds as the ‘Israeli' regime's ‘capital'" will "provoke Muslims and inflame a new Intifada and intensify extremism and violent behavior for which the US and the ‘Israeli' regime will be responsible."

The statement also called on the international community to pressure the US not to go through with the embassy move or the recognition of al-Quds as the ‘Israeli' regime's ‘capital.'

The statement was issued shortly after Trump officially declared the disputed city of Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel's capital, despite warnings from around the world that the measure risks triggering a fresh wave of violence in the Middle East.

In a speech at the White House earlier in the day, Trump said his administration would also begin a years-long process of moving the American embassy in Tel Aviv to the holy city.

The announcement was a major shift by Washington that overturns decades of US foreign policy.
