JERUSALEM, Palestine – The Palestinian jihadist group, Hamas, has warned the United States to not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv. 

“This would represent a US assault on the city and give legitimacy to [Israel] over the city,” Hamas said in a statement released on Saturday.

Hamas called on Palestinians to take action against the “brutal decision.”

“Any decision whatsoever would not change the fact that al-Quds [Jerusalem] is of Arab and Islamic identity, and is part of the Palestinian land,” Hamas pointed out.

Hamas receives a significant amount of arms and aid from Iran, despite the jihadist group helped train Free Syrian Army units and taught them how to dig tunnels, which were later used to blow up positions of the Syrian Army.
