Palestinian in Gaza names triplets Jerusalem, Capital and Palestine

December 22, 2017

A Palestinian from the besieged Gaza Strip’s southern village of Khan Yunis has named his three newborn triplets “Quds”, “Asima” and “Filisteen” – meaning “Jerusalem”, “Capital” and “Palestine” in Arabic – in protest against the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Nidal Al-Siqli, 30, told the Anadolu Agency that he chose the names “to emphasize Jerusalem’s Palestinian, Arab and Muslim character”.

“Jerusalem is and forever will be the eternal capital of Palestine,” Al-Siqli stressed.

The Palestinian father noted that Quds and Filisteen are both boys, while Asima is a girl, adding that they were all born yesterday.

Al-Siqli added that he and his wife hope to have another girl to call her Abadiyya, eternal in Arabic.

“I hope the Palestinian and Arab efforts succeed in revoking the US decision soon,” he said.

On 6 December, the US President Donald Trump announced his decision to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and said that the American embassy in Tel Aviv would be relocated to the Holy City. Since then, demonstrations have broken out across the world with Palestinians holding continuous protests since the decision was announced.
