Rouhani: US does not respect rights of Palestinians

Rouhani: US does not respect rights of Palestinians

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said that the only reason US President Donald Trump "dared" recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was because some in the region sought to establish ties to Israel.

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.

United States president's Dec 6 announcement to recognize Beit-ul Moqaddas as the capital city of Israel has faced extensive criticisms all over the world even from the U.S. allies.

A series of cross-border exchanges between Israel and Hamas fighters over missiles fired since Trump announced his decision on December 6 have left at least four Palestinians dead, but no injuries were reported on December 11.

Palestinians claim Jerusalem's eastern sector, where the mosque stands, as the capital of a future state, and they oppose the USA move.

Elsewhere, Hatami said that Iran welcomes expansion of cooperation with Turkey in defense area.

Other countries had also not said who they would send, Cavusoglu said, adding that the meeting of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation countries must stand up to what he called Washington's "I am a super power, I can do anything" mentality.

Iran, the leading Shi'ite Muslim power, and Sunni Muslim Saudi Arabia are competing for influence in the Middle East, where they support rival groups in Yemen, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon.

"This incorrect measure showed to the world the nature of the U.S. and Zionist regime more than ever and proved that they do not want to recognize the rights of Palestinians", he said.

Trump declared on December 6 that he recognizes al-Quds as the capital of Israel and ordered the relocation of the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to al-Quds.

In Ramallah, in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, dozens of Palestinians threw stones at Israeli soldiers, who responded with tear gas and rubber bullets.
