Abbas' speech on Jerusalem focus of dailies — Newspapers Review

In a televised speech from his home in the ash-Shati refugee camp in Gaza, the head of the Political Bureau of Hamas movement, Ismail Haniyya, strongly denounced the American decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move the embassy to the occupied city, and called for a new Intifada in every part of occupied Palestine.

U.S. President Donald Trump is due to formally recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital later on Wednesday and begin preparations to move the embassy from Tel Aviv, three senior U.S. officials confirmed late Tuesday.

The king "reiterated that such a risky step of relocation or recognition of Al-Quds as the capital of Israel would constitute a flagrant provocation of Muslims all over the world, as per its lofty status to them and as it is the cradle of Al-Aqsa Mosque, the first direction they were facing in their daily prayers", the official Saudi Press Agency added.

He called on Palestinian Authority to be "courageous' and announce that Oslo accords are over".

In the Saudi version of the call, King Salman told Trump "that any USA declaration on the status of Al-Quds before reaching a final settlement would harm peace negotiation process and escalate tension in the region".

The secretary general of the Arab League echoed the Palestinians.

In this regard, Haniyeh said the Muslim Ummah (nation) "has to rise above its wounds and unite for Al-Quds".

Al-Ayyam and al-Hayat al-Jadida added the Palestinian Education Ministry has chose to call on schools to observe a general strike today.

According to al-Ayyam and al-Hayat al-Jadida, the Arab League would convene a meeting at the level of foreign ministers on Saturday over Trump's decision.

Peskov said it was early to comment on a decision that had not been taken yet.

Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital would cause "the United States to lose the legal and moral ground and its mediating role, and turning it into a biased party to the conflict", the resolution said.

Moreover, al-Hayat al-Jadida said a Palestinian child from the Gaza Strip died on Wednesday after succumbing to wounds he sustained during the Israeli onslaught on Gaza in 2014.
