Lebanon: Hundreds descend on Beirut to protest Trump's Jerusalem decision

Hundreds of people rallied in Beirut, Friday, to demonstrate against US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Protesters marched through the Qasqas and Al-Tariq al-Jadideh neighbourhoods, waving Palestinian flags. Fatah Movement Secretary Fathi Abu al-Ardat, who attended the rally, stressed that «there will be no security and stability without... Еще Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Palestine.» Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday in a live televised address from Washington DC. He also began the process of moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv. The decision caused an immediate outrage and fury from countries in the Islamic world. The status of the Holy City is a contentious issue in the Middle East peace process. Israel has always claimed Jerusalem as its capital while Palestinians demand that annexed East Jerusalem becomes the capital of a future Palestinian state.
