Tens of thousands of people have turned out for a Hizbullah rally in Beirut's southern suburbs that was called to protest U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The rally on Monday, one of several large demonstrations recently held across the Middle East to protest the move, was called by Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.

The protesters marched through the southern suburbs of Beirut, a Hizbullah stronghold, waving flags and chanting in support of the Palestinians, who claim east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

The demonstrators also chanted "Death to America!" and "Death to Israel!" in protest over Trump's decision.

"Jerusalem, Eternal Capital of Palestine" and "Jerusalem is Ours", read some of the banners carried during the rally.

"Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine and will be until Judgement Day," said Iman Ghadboun, 28, attending the protest with her seven-year-old daughter.

The rally came a day after a violent protest organized by leftist and pan-Arabist Lebanese and Palestinian factions near the U.S. Embassy in Awkar, where security forces fired tear gas and water cannons at rowdy protesters who pelted them with stones.

Only tens of thousands. Where were the 450.000 palos for THEIR demo? If Jerusalem is yours as you chanted, why are you still here? Shouldn’t you be massing on the border?

What happened to that miscalculated explosion that kizbullah planned? Hell, they are used to killing innocent people.

Better yet, let's get them to take their fighters and conquer Jerusalem. That will get me to respect them a little.

He thinks he's some kind of Saladdin of the 21st century. Well, he's not. he's a crook, a terrorist, a backward heretic, a coward.

No you won't reconquer Jerusalem because it isn't yours to reconquer. Al Aqsa was built by the noblest of all Califs, Omar ibn al Khattab. If the Palestinians want to rise against the usurpers, it's their right to do it but they should do it alone!
