Jordanian names daughter 'Quds'

[10/13/2018 2:36:12 PM]

AMMONNEWS - A Jordanian citizen named his newborn girl “Al-Quds” which is the Arabic equivalent of Jerusalem city.

The girl was born on October 5, 2018 in Balqa and was issued a birth certificate (shown above) on October, 11, 2018.

According to the father, who resides in Tafilah Governorate, choosing this specific name for his daughter comes to deliver a message of defiance against US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Back in 2017, a Palestinian man from Gaza named his triplet: "Jerusalem", "Capital" and "Palestine" - where the three names combined read: 'Jerusalem is Palestine’s capital' - in an attempt to protest against Trump’s decision in moving the US embassy to Jerusalem.
