 Iraq’s parliament slams US policy shift on Quds

The Iraqi lawmakers decided that the US decision was a provocation to all religions and a threat to international peace.

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Iraq’s Parliament on Sunday passed a resolution condemning the US move to recognize al-Quds as Israeli regime's capital.

The Iraqi lawmakers decided that the US decision was a provocation to all religions and a threat to international peace.

The lawmakers also said al-Quds is the undisputed capital of the Palestinian state.

US President Donald Trump sparked global anger on December 6, when he declared that Washington would recognize al-Quds as the “capital” of Israel and move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city.

Later, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution by a decisive vote of 128 to 9 to urge Trump to reverse his contentious decision.

Over the past decades, the Israeli regime has tried to change the demographic makeup of al-Quds by constructing illegal settlements, destroying historical sites and expelling the local Palestinian population.

Palestinians and Muslims all over the world are extremely angry at Israeli attacks on the al-Aqsa Mosque, considering them the desecration of the holy Islamic site

Palestinians have declared al-Quds as the capital of a future Palestinian independent state, and that its heritage should remain intact.
