Iran Condemns US Decision To Move Embassy Yo Jerusalem

Gaza death toll in US embassy violence rises to 4 as Israel responds to rockets

Iran "will not tolerate a violation of Islamic sanctities", he said.

His calls came after US President Donald Trump announced that his administration will recognise Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel and move its embassy there in a move that Al-Ghoul said did not come as a surprise.

AP said the decision was devoid of justice, violated global laws and infringed on the rights of Palestinians.

In the meantime, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday that the relocation of the USA embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is illegal and would further destabilize Palestine and the Middle East region. Iran has long supported a number of Palestinian militant groups in their fight against Israel.

Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, Khaled Qadoumi described al-Quds as the redline of Muslims around the world and said the new decision taken by the U.S. president to recognize al-Quds as the capital of the Israeli regime has ignored warnings from inside the USA and unchanging principles of Palestinians.

At the same gathering, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said, "Quds belongs to Islam, Muslims and the Palestinians, and there is no place for new adventurism by global oppressors", according to Mizan, the news site for the Iranian judiciary.

"On the issue of Palestine (US) hands are tied and they can not advance their goals", Khamenei said.

While the region requires stability and security, such illegal moves of the U.S. and Israel could push "the Palestinian state and the whole region" toward instability, Rouhani added.

"Whatever America wants, they'll work against Islam to accomplish it", he said.
