"It will cost Israel NIS 50 million ($14 million) and is created to market the country".
He added: "This year's Quds Day is special; this year, in addition to being the 70th anniversary of the occupation of Palestinian land, we are witnessing that Bayt al-Maqdis, which is respected by all Muslims, has been announced as the capital of the occupying Zionist Regime by the United States against all global rules and regulations".
The request comes against the backdrop of the cancellation of a friendly match between the Argentinian and Israeli national soccer teams, which had been scheduled to take place at Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem on Saturday.

Lionel Messi will not be leading Argentina onto the pitch for a World Cup warm-up against Israel after the game was called off following protests by pro-Palestinian groups.

Shortly after the victory both Barzilai and Regev said the competition would be held in Jerusalem.
He had also objected to having the match played in Jerusalem.
On Thursday, the association tweeted: "Israel FA has filed a complaint to FIFA only against the Palestinian FA and the president of the PFA, Jibril Rajoub". "It's my responsibility to take care of the health and physical integrity of the entire delegation". Al-Quds is the Arabic name for Jerusalem, and Iran says the day is an occasion to express support for the Palestinians.
Rajoub had accused Israel of playing politics with the game, by moving it from its original location in Haifa to Jerusalem, and by trying to link it to celebrations surrounding Israel's 70th anniversary.
At a press conference in Ramallah on Wednesday he appeared next to a giant picture of himself with Messi and a sign reading: "From Palestine, thank you Messi".
Instead, he spent 22 paragraphs partly peddling an alternate conspiracy theory: that Argentina canceled not for political reasons, but because the team feared "violence" from Palestinians.
