Palestinians have reacted to Donald Trump's recognition of al-Quds [Jerusalem] as the "Israeli" entity's so-called capital with street protests, but one couple has come up with an idea of their own, in the naming of their triplets.

Palestinian Triplets Named In Protest of Trump’s Al-Quds Move

Nidal and Islam al-Saiqli from besieged Gaza Strip's southern village of Khan Yunis named their three newborn triplets "Quds", "Asima" and "Filisteen" - meaning "al-Quds" [Jerusalem], "Capital" and "Palestine" in Arabic.

Palestinians also see the disputed city as their capital, and Trump's Dec. 6 recognition broke with decades of international policy that the issue should be resolved through negotiations.

The three babies Quds and Filisteen are both boys, while Asima is a girl, were born in December, two weeks after the Trump decision.

Al-Siqli added that he and his wife hope to have another girl to call her Abadiyya, eternal in Arabic.

"Thank God, I had triplets so we were able to name them in response to Trump's decision," said mother Islam, 25.

"There is no value to the Trump decision. Al-Quds is our eternal capital," her husband Nidal, 30, said.

To illustrate the names, the couple arranges the three tiny sleeping children on a bed with their birth certificates on their stomachs.

On Dec. 6, the US president recognized al-Quds as the entity's so-called capital, prompting widespread condemnation across the region and angry demonstrations in the Palestinian territories.

The "Israeli" entity seized al-Quds in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed it, in moves never recognized by the international community.

The city remains at the heart of the Middle East conflict.
