Hamas won't attend meeting on Jerusalem recognition

Hamas and Islamic Jihad on Saturday announced its decision not to attend a meeting discussing responses to US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The meeting will include various terror groups, as well as the Palestinian Authority.

In a statement Hamas reiterated its "commitment to the unity" of the people, but said the "conditions under which the committee will be held will...prevent decisions that reach the level of our aspirations."
