East Jerusalem is Palestine's capital: OIC

The move comes one day after the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) at a summit convened in Istanbul, recognized East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine.

Four Palestinians were killed and hundreds wounded Friday in violence across the Palestinian territories, amid more fallout following U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Salam's Christmas cancellation comes as part of continued backlash against Trump, who reversed decades of policy and made the USA the only country to recognize the contested city of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"Trump's decision is a deliberate undermining of all peace efforts, is in the interest of extremism and terrorism, and threatens global peace and security", they added.

Following the 1967 Middle East war, Israel declared Jerusalem as its capital.

Mr. Erdogan denounced Israel as a state defined by "occupation" and "terror", in a new diatribe against the Israeli leadership.




"He said all countries who "value worldwide law and fairness" should recognise occupied Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine", saying Islamic countries would "never give up" on this demand.

He cited the US decision directly and said that it had taken the "joy" from the celebrations in the hometown of Jesus Christ, according to 10 News.

Mass protests broke out in the days afterwards, with terrorist group Hamas calling on supporters to start an "intifada" uprising against Israel.

Meanwhile, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Palestinians would no longer accept any role for Washington in the peace process, describing Trump's decision as a "major crime" which serves as "a gift to the Zionist movement".

The Palestinian health ministry said two of the deaths occurred at the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip in clashes with Israeli soldiers.

The final statement from the OIC echoed this sentiment, saying Mr. Trump's move was "an announcement of the USA administration's withdrawal from its role as sponsor of peace" in West Asia.
