State of Palestine: Al-Hamdallah calls for Gaza-West Bank unity after Jerusalem declaration

Palestinian Prime Minister Rami al-Hamdallah called for unity between Gaza and the West Bank, speaking from Gaza City on Thursday, in the face of US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. «I think the correct response to the step taken by Trump is the implementation of an urgent national unity between Gaza and the West Bank. This is the response to Trump and... Еще Netanyahu,» said al-Hamdallah. The Palestinian leader also dubbed Trump's words «meaningless» and «just ink on papers,» adding that Palestinians would fight back with national unity and a just cause. Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday in a live televised address from Washington D.C. and started the process of moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv. The decision caused an immediate outrage and fury from Palestinians, with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh calling for a «new intifada» against Israel.
