The Arab League (AL) warned on Sunday against the “hazardous consequences” if the US recognises Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. “If implemented, it would mark a change in Washington’s historical stance that sees the holy city as an occupied Palestinian city and an integral part of the occupied Palestinian lands,” Xinhua quoted Saeed Abu-Ali, AL Assistant Secretary General for the occupied Palestinian and Arab lands, as saying.
