RAMALLAH – 16 December 2017: Fatah movement said it will continue its public activities against US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
The public activities against the US decision are to continue in all governorates, Fatah said in a Saturday statement.
The movement also declared next Friday “Palestinian day of rage” nationwide in protest against the decision.
On December 6 , Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel during a televised speech from the White House. Trump’s decision was met by a barrage of criticism and condemnations from many Arab and world leaders, while protests took place in the Gaza Strip, West Bank and different parts of the Arab world.
