Excerpt of an official PA daily editorial

Headline: “Hello, leader”
       “The Palestinians – as is their custom at moments of confrontation and defiance, and since the ugly declaration of American President [Donald] Trump [recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital] - have sacrificed and will always continue to sacrifice pure blood (six Martyrs (Shahids) and hundreds of wounded as of now) [parentheses in source], not only to defend the sites holy to Islam and Christianity in their capital occupied Jerusalem, but also in order to defend the honor and glory of the Arab nation.”

US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel - On Dec. 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and instructed the State Department to begin preparations to transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump added that the final borders of Jerusalem will be determined during negotiations.
