TEHRAN, May 13 - Hundreds of Israelis and Palestinians have taken to the streets of Jerusalem al-Quds to voice their outrage at the upcoming relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to the occupied city.

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) – The demonstration took place on Saturday, with participants chanting slogans such as "Jerusalem, don't give up, we will end the occupation."

The protesters also called on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to step down and demanded an end to "escalating tensions, spreading hatred, and provocations that undermine a chance for peace.”

They shouted, "Netanyahu resign. Peace is worth more than you," "Don't set Jerusalem on fire," "You don't have any shame, there is no holiness in an occupied city."

Israel claims the whole of Jerusalem al-Quds, but Palestinians consider the city’s eastern sector as the capital of their future state.

The US is scheduled to move its diplomatic mission to Jerusalem al-Quds on Monday amid worldwide condemnations.

President Donald Trump announced the dramatic shift in Washington’s policy on Jerusalem al-Quds last December, saying the US was recognizing the occupied city as the “capital” of Israel.
