Bahrainis take to streets to condemn US Jerusalem al-Quds move

Hundreds of people have staged rallies across Bahrain in a show of solidarity with the Palestinian nation and to roundly condemn the recent decision by US President Donald Trump to recognize Israeli-occupied Jerusalem al-Quds as the capital of the Tel Aviv regime.

Protesters took to the streets in the northern villages of Abu Saiba and Shakhura on Friday evening, chanting slogans against the United States and demanding that the move be reversed.

They also trampled on US flags and posters bearing the picture of Trump.

Separately, people held a demonstration under the motto of “Al-Quds, the Capital of all Muslims” in Sehla village on the outskirts of the capital city Manama.

Similar protest demonstrations were staged in the villages of Karrana, Saar, Eker, Nuwaidrat, al-Musalla, Jidhafs, al-Daih, Barbar as well as the island of Sitra.

The protesters called for the immediate expulsion of US Ambassador to Bahrain Justin Siberell.

On Wednesday, Trump announced his decision to recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel’s capital and relocate the US embassy in the occupied lands from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem al-Quds.

Jerusalem al-Quds remains at the core of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, with Palestinians hoping that the eastern part of the city would eventually serve as the capital of a future independent Palestinian state.
