Iran says Trump Jerusalem move will spark ‘new intifada’

TEHRAN, Dec 7:  Iran strongly condemned US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel today, saying it threatened a “new intifada”, or uprising.
“The provocative and unwise decision by the US… Will provoke Muslims and inflame a new intifada and an escalation of radical, angry and violent behaviour,” said the Iranian foreign ministry in a statement on its website. (AGENCIES)
