Trump triggers Palestinian fury & anti-US protests in Turkey, Jordan

SHARE

SHAFAQNA – Anti-US protests erupted almost immediately after Donald Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital – with greater demonstrations expected across the Muslim world, united in their support of the Palestinian cause.

Palestinians were first to take to the streets following Trump’s Jerusalem decision – a potentially fatal blow to their future statehood ambitions – as their leaders called for three days of rage against the controversial move.

Hundreds of enraged youths burned tires and American flags in spontaneous protests on Wednesday across the Gaza Strip.

In the evening, protesters waving Palestinian flags heard Hamas leader, Ismail Radwan, declare that Trump’s decision will “open the gates of hell.” Chanting “death to America” and “death to Israel,” as well as “down with Trump,” they condemned Washington’s new policy.
