Iran's Khamenei slams Trump's Jerusalem plan: "Palestinians will prevail"

A general view shows the Dome of the Rock and Jerusalem's Old City

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday called on Palestinians and Muslims to "rise up" against what he described as a US "conspiracy" against the Islamic world.

USA plans to move its Israel embassy to Jerusalem are a sign of incompetence and failure, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday, reported Reuters.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani blasted his USA counterpart Donald Trump's plan to recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital on Wednesday, saying it would not be tolerated.

"Palestine today tops the political issues facing the Islamic Ummah (people) and everyone is duty-bound to make endeavors towards its freedom and salvage", Khamenei was quoted by Press TV as saying.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif made a tweet in Arabic language stating that "al-Quds (Jerusalem) will remain Arabic and Islamic".

Iran wants "peace and stability" in the region but will not tolerate the violation of Islamic holy sites, Rouhani said.

The ambassadors from Muslims countries are assembled in Iran to mark the "week of unity" declared by Iranian former Leader Ayatollah Khomeini to integrate the two major sects of Islam, Shia and Sunni.

"On the issue of Palestine (US) hands are tied and they can not advance their goals", Khamenei said.

Certain rulers in the region are "dancing to America's tune" Khamenei said, an indirect reference to Iran's main regional rival Saudi Arabia. Therefore, the Islamic Republic of Iran strongly condemns this act and calls on the worldwide organizations, influential countries, and especially the Islamic states, to maintain the stability of the region and prevent the United States from doing so, which is only for the benefit of the Zionist regime.
