Hezbollah leader, Hassan Nasrallah, has vowed at a rally in Beirut that the Iranian-backed militant group will return their focus to the Palestinian cause, following US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Tens of thousands of people have demonstrated at a Hezbollah rally in southern Beirut to protest Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, euronews.com reported.

Carrying Lebanese and Palestinian flags as well as the militant group's yellow banners, men, women and children marched through streets chanting ‘Death to Isreal ‘ and ‘Oh America, you are the Great Satan.’

The rally, one of several large demonstrations recently held across the Middle East to protest the move by Trump, was called by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah.

At a fiery address broadcast to protesters from an undisclosed location, Nasrallah vowed to return Hezbollah's focus to the Palestinian cause after years of fighting in Syria's civil war.

He said he hoped the decision would mark the ‘beginning of the end’ of the Jewish state and called on allies of the Iranian-backed militant group to put in place a united strategy ‘in the field’ to confront Israel.
