Nasrallah on Jerusalem declaration: 'Balfour no. 2'

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah referred to US president Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"We feel that we are facing a second Balfour declaration, "Nasrallah said. "When we understand the dangers involved in this decision it will encourage everyone to act and to take responsibility, and not listen to what will be said in the coming days.
