Syrian Coalition Condemns Trump's decision on Jerusalem and affirms
that Palestine is Arab land

The Syrian Coalition condemns the decision by United States President
Donald Trump to recognize occupied Jerusalem as the capital of Israel
and to move the US Embassy to the occupied city.
The Coalition asserts that Jerusalem is a Palestinian Arab land. Under
international law, neither the Israeli occupation, as an occupying
force, nor any foreign authority have the right to claim sovereignty
over the city.
Jerusalem is the capital of the state of Palestine and always will be.
No decision by any one can change the historical and geographical

Palestinian people and the will of the world community.

measures taken by the Israeli occupation concerning the status of
Jerusalem; and condemning the transfer of diplomatic missions to the

Islamic countries to confront the decision. It also calls on Arab and
Islamic countries to take all possible measures to stop the ongoing
violations of the rights of the Palestinian people and press for the
complete implementation of UN Security Council resolutions on
Palestine. These measures are crucial to paving the way for
comprehensive peace that restores rights to their original owners,
most notably the Golan Heights, paving the way for a future of
fruitful, constructive cooperation; and achieving security and
stability in the region and beyond.
On Thursday, Hamas called for a new intifada against the Israeli
occupation and to make Friday a "day of anger" in conjunction with the
implementation of a general and comprehensive strike for all
