Ynetnews reports: The Lebanese Iran-backed terrorist group Hezbollah said on Thursday it supported calls for a new Palestinian uprising in response to the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and urged support for “resistance” against the move.

“We support the call for a new Palestinian intifada (uprising) and escalating the resistance which is the biggest, most important and gravest response to the American decision,” Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, in a televised speech. “The Israeli enemy and its leaders do not respect international resolutions, it is proven,” Nasrallah began, claiming all Israel cares about is the approval of the United States.
