Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh stated that the US proposed to the Palestinian authorities to make Abu Dis the capital of Palestine instead of Jerusalem, during a meeting with Palestinian tribal leaders in Gaza City, Wednesday. Haniyeh stated, «The United States offered to give the Palestinian authority a capital or entity in Abu Dis area, far from Jerusalem, so that there is a bridge linking Abu Dis and Al-Aqsa Mosque,» adding their proposed plan also includes, «dividing Jerusalem into three parts; north, middle and south and establishing a political entity inside Gaza Strip.» Hamas leader in Gaza Yahya al-Sinwar stressed that the Soldiers of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, which is the armed wing of Hamas, «are prepared and are preparing to defend Jerusalem, not only to defend Jerusalem, so that it is not the capital of Israel, but to liberate Jerusalem.»
