Palestinians reject Trump Mideast plan

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called Trump’s Middle East peace plan the “slap of the century” and that the deal should be confined “to the dustbin of history” as thousands of Palestinians held protests in Gaza and the West Bank.

The protests, which continued on Thursday, underscored the depth of frustration with a proposal seen as overwhelmingly supportive of Israeli objectives that was drafted with no Palestinian input.

Trump’s plan proposed a “two-state” solution to the conflict, which envisages Israel and a future Palestinian state living alongside each other. The plan would see a Palestinian state with its capital in “eastern Jerusalem”. “I say to Trump and Israeli PM BenjaminNetanyahu: Jerusalem is not for sale, all our rights are not for sale. And your deal, the conspiracy, will not pass.”
