Hamas Warns US that Embassy Relocation to Jerusalem Would Cross Red Line

GAZA - The Islamist organization Hamas warned Monday that the relocation of the United States embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem would cross a red line.

"The relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem will pose an increasing danger," the Islamist movement warned newly elected US President Donald Trump in a note released in Gaza.

Hamas, which has maintained a formal refusal to reach any sort of agreement with Israel, stated that relocating the US embassy would be a "crime" and would "cross a red line".

The possible US embassy relocation Trump announced during his election campaign was one of the points discussed late on Sunday evening between the US president and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

On Sunday, President of the Palestinian National Authority Mahmoud Abbas sent Washington a warning advising that a series of measures were ready in the event the relocation did go ahead.

Abbas spoke to the media in Amman after his interview with King Abdullah II of Jordan, who expressed his commitment to preventing the move and supported blocking the plans of the US leader.

Earlier this month, Abbas stated that opening the US embassy in Jerusalem would amount to "aggression" and would cross an unacceptable "red line."

Although Israel claims Jerusalem as its "eternal capital", no country has opened an embassy in the thrice Holy City as all the diplomatic legations are located in Tel Aviv or nearby, due to the fact that the international community refuses to recognize the Israeli occupation and later annexation of the east side of the city.
