Yemen: Sanaa residents unfurl huge Palestinian flag at rally for Jerusalem

Hundreds of people rallied in Sanaa, Friday, to demonstrate against US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Demonstrators raised guns and waved Palestinian flags in solidarity with the Palestinian people. Yemeni army officer Ali al-Haimi said that «today we have rejected any international resolutions authorising Israeli Zionists to own Jerusalem. We... Еще are already rejecting their presence in Jerusalem.» 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.
