Syrian president says Jerusalem to be Palestinian capital

BEIRUT - The Palestinian cause will stay alive among Arabs until the establishment of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, the Syrian president's office said on Wednesday in response to US President Donald Trump's Jerusalem decision.

 

"The future of Jerusalem is not determined by a state or a president but is determined by its history and by the will and determination in the Palestinian cause," President Bashar Assad's office said on an official social media feed.
