State of Palestine: Protesters burn Trump effigy in Gaza City

Thousands of supporters of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) took to the streets in Gaza City on Saturday to express their outrage at US President Donald Trump’s decision to formally recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Demonstrators held guns to the head of an effigy of Trump, before later setting it alight. Images of the Saudi Arabian royal family were also the... Еще target of demonstrators’ anger. In an interview, central committee member of the PFLP Hani Thawabteh warned of consequences arising from Trump’s announcement. «This decision will make the earth fire under the feet of the invaders. We will not stop until they cancel it, and when they cease the occupation of our land,» he said. On Wednesday, Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in a live televised address from Washington D.C. The decision sparked immediate outrage and fury from the Arab world, with leaders calling for three days of rage against Israel. The status of the Holy City is a key issue in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
