Khalid Abdumajid, head of the Palestinian Resistance Factions Coalition, told Sputnik Arabic that Palestinians want to force the US to revert its decision regarding the status of Jerusalem.
"We Palestinians realize that the United States, with its current policy, is our main enemy who fully supports Israel. The US wants to deprive us of our legal right to live on our native land. This is why we will fight on all available levels. … We want to force the US to revert its decision," Abdumajid said.
"Even Washington’s allies were bewildered by the US policy in Palestine. It is clear now that the United States cannot be considered as a mediator in attempts to resolve the Palestinian issue," he remarked.
Abdumajid also praised Russia for its efforts aimed at resolving the current crisis and declared that Palestine should prepare for a lengthy war for its rights.
According to him, all factions in Palestine need to unite in pursuit of this goal and develop a joint strategy.
On May 14, the United States held an official ceremony for the relocation of its embassy to Jerusalem, cementing President Donald Trump’s decision to formally recognize the city as the capital of Israel.
The occasion was marred by a violent clash between Israeli security forces and Palestinian protesters on the Israel-Gaza border, which resulted in over 50 Palestinians being killed and another 2,500 injured.
