DAMASCUS, (PIC)– Hamas Movement warned the Israeli occupation government of dire consequences if its Knesset passed a bill declaring the occupied Palestinian city of Jerusalem as a capital for the Jewish people and affirmed it would not remain silent.
In a press release on Sunday, Hamas said this Israeli move is a new serious act of aggression against the Palestinian people and their national rights.
Hamas highlighted that Jerusalem would remain the capital of Palestine and the core of its national cause and such Israeli decision would never change the history and reality.
The Palestinian Movement urged the Palestinians in the occupied lands to move to defend their holy city and its holy sites, and demanded the Arab League and the organization of Islamic cooperation to stand in the face of Israel’s Judaization activities in Jerusalem.
For his part, Palestinian lawmaker Ahmed Abu Halabya on Sunday condemned this Israeli move against Jerusalem as “criminal” and a blatant violation of international law, which states that Jerusalem is an occupied Palestinian city.
The lawmaker stressed that the Israeli occupation state is trying to take advantage of the Arab nations’ preoccupation with their internal revolutions and events to impose a fait accompli and enact further racist laws against the Muslim and Christian Palestinians in the holy city.
