TEHRAN – Ismail Haniyeh, the current leader of Hamas and former prime minister of the Palestinian Authority, on Monday evening called Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to discuss Washington’s recent move in recognizing al-Quds as the new capital city of Israel.

Urging unified action in face of the United States’ new Middle East policy, Rouhani said he had no doubt that the Palestinian nation, backed by the Islamic Ummah, will force the American-Zionist move down the path to failure.

Rouhani said Palestinian resistance 

He said the new move proved the U.S. and Israel’s lack of regard for the Palestinian rights.

The heads of state of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation will meet in Istanbul, Turkey, on Wednesday to take decision about the new U.S. move against Palestine.

Haniyeh, for his part, thanked Iran for backing Palestine, vowing that the oppressed nation will never allow the new U.S.-Zionist policy to be put into action.
