gaza city - Tens of thousands of Palestinians, including hundreds of armed, met on Thursday in Gaza to celebrate Hamas' thirtieth anniversary. The leader of the Islamic resistance movement solemnly promised to reverse the decision of US President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
'We are going to tackle Trump's decision. No superpower is capable of giving Jerusalem to Israel, 'said Ismail Haniyah. 'We will never recognize Israel. We reaffirm that the establishment of the movement aims to liberate Palestine. 'Hiniyah again called for a' Friday of anger. '
Earlier in the day Israel closed the border crossings in the Gaza Strip in response to rocket attacks from the enclave, where Hamas has been serving for ten years. They have been there almost every day since Trump's statement on 6 December. His move caused great turmoil in the Arab and Muslim world and for worried reactions in Europe and Russia.
The intention is that Hamas, designated by the US and EU as a terrorist organization, transfers the power in Gaza to the moderate Palestinian Authority under the leadership of President Mahmoud Abbas as part of a reconciliation agreement with Fatah.
