TEHRAN, Dec. 08 (Press Shia Agency) –Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri has condemned US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the Israeli regime’s capital.
General Mohammad Baqeri said Thursday that Muslims would not allow a part of the Islamic world to be separated from its body.
Arab and Muslim governments “face a historical and decisive test,” he said, adding “history will judge about their silence or support for the Muslim nations against the Zionist regime.”
He also denounced Trump’s “unwise” decision as “a blatant violation of the rights of the oppressed Palestinian nation and international resolutions,” saying the US and the Zionist regime stand responsible for any tension and confrontation as a result of this move.
In a speech on Wednesday, Trump declared Al-Quds as the “capital” of Israeli regime and directed the State Department to start making arrangements to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to the ancient city.
