Hamas praises UN resolution on Jerusalem

UNITED NATIONS – The Islamic militant group Hamas is welcoming a UN General Assembly resolution calling the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital "null and void."


In a statement, spokesman Fawzi Barhoum calls the resolution "a step in the right direction" and "a blow to (President Donald) Trump's announcement." He says the resolution emphasizes "the Palestinian right to the holy city."


The General Assembly voted 128-9 with 35 abstentions in favor of the non-binding resolution.
