Gaza6Dec4QALQILYA (PNIC):-A mass rally was staged in Qalqilya overnight Wednesday to protest Trump’s recognition of Occupied Jerusalem as the capital of the self-proclaimed Israeli state.

Hundreds of Palestinians took to Qalqilya streets to speak up against Trump’s declaration, which they said manifests of the U.S. racist agenda and biased position.

“Occupied Jerusalem will forever remain the rock that will smash all conspiracies,” yelled one of the rally-goers.

“Occupied Jerusalem has been and will forever remain exclusive to Arabs, Muslims, and Christians,” said another.

Activists and local organizations announced a general strike on Thursday in response to what they called an intolerable transgression of all red lines by the Trump administration.

On Wednesday evening, U.S. President Donald Trump has formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, saying during his speech at the White House that he will move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, despite calls from the world leaders to backtrack on the move.
