Palestinian Ambassador to Iraq Ahmed ‘Aql complained that U.S. President Trump had recognized Jerusalem “as the capital of the Jewish people,” saying that they constitute “a religion, not a people.”

Asked what would happen if the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units decided to go to Palestine to liberate it, ‘Aql said that the entire Palestinian people would welcome them.

“Everybody will support them, because people are seeking a new Saladin or a new Nebuchadnezzar,” he said in the May 23 interview with the Iraqi Al-Rased TV channel.
