Hamas Leader Calls For Uprising After Trump's Jerusalem Announcement
Ismail Haniya called for a new "intifada," or an uprising, against Israel after President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
The leader of Hamas isn't pleased with U.S. President Donald Trump's controversial decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
Ismail Haniya called for a new "intifada," or an uprising, against Israel. He said Trump's announcement amounted to a "war declaration against Palestinians," adding that it "killed" the Israel-Palestinian peace process.
But leaders in Israel had a much different response.
As Newsy previously reported, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Trump for his "courageous and just decision" to recognize Jerusalem as the capital.
