NNA - The Loyalty to the Resistance parliamentary bloc on Thursday vehemently condemned President Donald Trump's fresh decision to declare Jerusalem as the Israeli entity's capital, warning of its "disastrous" reverberations on regional and international security and stability.

"US President Donald Trump's declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of the Israeli entity is the worst and most dangerous declaration a US president had ever dared to make," the bloc said in a statement issued following its weekly meeting.

The bloc also said that Trump's decision, which also include the transfer of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, represented "a blatant hostility against Palestine and its people, as well as against the Islamic and Christian holy sites."

"This American hostility is an intended violation of the UN Charter and all the international resolutions relevant to Palestine," the bloc added.

"The only way to recuperate rights is through resistance," it said.
