Iran Urges to Foil US-Israeli 'Plan', Hezbollah Calls Washington Isolated

Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital will hasten the country's destruction, Iran's defense minister said on Monday, while a top Revolutionary Guards commander phoned two Palestinian armed groups and pledged support for them.

Soleimani, commander of the Al Quds force, made the offer in a phone call late Monday with leaders of groups in Gaza, according to the Revolutionary Guard Corps' website, Sepah News, which didn't give details of the assistance proffered.

The senior IRGC commander also urged all resistance movements in the region to boost their readiness to defend the al-Aqsa Mosque.

The heads of state of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation will meet in Istanbul, Turkey, on Wednesday to take decision about the new US move against Palestine.

In response, the Israel army said it hit Hamas military positions in the strip with tank and aircraft fire, according to RFE/RL.

Addressing the nation, the leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah movement on Monday called to isolate the U.S. and Israel in response to the Jerusalem decision.

In a telephone conversation with his Turkish counterpart, Iran's Defence Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said that Trump's decision comes after the defeat of the United States in Iraq and Syria, their failure to declare Iraqi Kurdistan independent, and their dismay after the compulsory resignation of the prime minister of the Lebanon. Iran also supports proxies such as Hezbollah and Hamas that have warred with Israel.

Slamming Trump decision in ordering the U.S. embassy move to al-Quds, Canikli reiterated that, "the decision is not accepted by any Muslim country in the world".

Trump's decision is "counter-productive to the administration's own objectives", Gates told Bloomberg News. This announcement "makes it much tougher to try and get any kind of political progress" between Israel and the Palestinians.

The announcement prompted harsh worldwide warnings that it would bring more chaos to the Middle East region. The worldwide community doesn't recognize Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem, whose eastern sector Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war.
