Palestinians Protest Trump’s Decision on Jerusalem in Rome

Hundreds of Palestinians and their supporters have rallied in Rome to protest U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the American Embassy there.

The protest on Saturday, outside the U.S. Embassy in Rome, also drew American citizens.

Some Italian demonstrators expressed dismay that Italy’s top cycling race Giro d’Italia” will start next year in Jerusalem.

Other protesters held Palestinian flags, and some shouted slogans against Israel. One participant held a sign reading, “Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the State of Palestine.”
