Iraq's senior shi'ite cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani condemned on Thursday U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to recognize al-Quds as Israel's capital.

 

(reuters) -- ''This decision is condemned and decried, it hurt the feelings of hundreds of millions of Arabs and Muslims,'' said a statement from Sistani's office.
 
''But it won't change the reality that al-Quds is an occupied land which should return to the sovereignty of its Palestinian owners no matter how long it takes,'' it said, calling on the ''Umma'', or Islamic nation, ''to combine its efforts that purpose.''
