    The leader of Hamas, the Palestinian faction that controls Gaza, has called for a Palestinian uprising against Israel, following the US decision to recognise Jerusalem as its capital.

    Ismail Haniya made the comments at a mass rally to mark the 30th anniversary of the faction, which was formed in response to Israel's illegal occupation of West Bank and the Gaza strip.
