BEIRUT, Dec 7 (Reuters) - Lebanese Hezbollah's parliamentary bloc said on Thursday that U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital constituted an unprecedented aggression against Palestine, and resistance was the only way to recover lost rights.

U.S. President Donald Trump's decision was the "most dangerous" from any American administration, and threatened international security, the bloc said in a televised statement. (Reporting by Ellen Francis and Dahlia Nehme; Editing by Kevin Liffey)
