(MENAFN) Spoke man of Islamist resistance group Hamas, Abdulatif Qanu'a said that such a move will neither give legitimacy to Israeli occupation nor change Jerusalem's history,'
Saying that 'The US decision is a flagrant violation of international laws and resolutions,' Qanu'a added the move will provoke Muslims, Arabs and Palestinians' passions.
Another Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem said that the Palestinian heated protests throughout the occupied territories will be a clear response to the US decision.
The embassy opening in May, much earlier than expected, will coincide with Israel's 70th anniversary, the spokesperson added.
Although 14 members of the UNSC voted for a resolution against Trump's decision, the US vetoed the resolution, which was later confirmed in the General Assembly.
