Iran: Khamenei warns of “heavy blow” against Israel in case of Jerusalem capital declaration

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned from Tehran on Wednesday that “Zionists” would be dealt a heavy blow if Jerusalem is recognised as the capital of Israel.

Speaking to an audience of Iranian officials and ambassadors of Muslim countries to Iran, Khamenei stressed that “Zionists” would be unable to achieve their goals, and that Palestine would be finally liberated.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, also present at the conference, called the US decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital “a new adventure of global arrogance.”

Khamenei and Rouhani’s declarations came at the heels of US President Donald Trump’s alleged decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and order to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to the city. The White House’s announcement, scheduled at 18:00 GMT on Wednesday, was accompanied by worldwide condemnation.
