USA: Thousands hit Times Square to vent anger at Jerusalem decision

Thousands of protesters gathered in New York City’s Times Square on Friday to protest US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The protesters waved Palestinian flags while chanting against both Israel and Trump. “That’s our land, Israel attack us and now Trump coming to give Jerusalem to the Israeli people, Trump giving that as a gift for Israel... Еще, that’s wrong, we will die for Palestine,” explained Fadi, a protester. 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. Israel has always claimed Jerusalem as its capital while Palestinians demand that annexed East Jerusalem becomes the capital of a future Palestinian state.
