UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Thousands of Palestinians in the occupied Gaza Strip and West Bank gathered today in protest against US President Donald Trump’s so-called Middle East Peace Plan.
Demonstrators in Gaza staged two protests where they raised placards denouncing the so-called “Century Agreement” and raised banners demanding to be abandoned.
The Hamas-run government’s media office staged a demonstration outside the office of the United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process (UNSCO), west of Gaza.
The protesters carried placards following their categorical rejection of the US plan and affirming the status of Quds as the capital of Palestine.
In the occupied West Bank, a march was held at the northern entrance to the cities of Ramallah and Al-Bireh.
The Israeli army fired rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse the protest, while protesters responded with stones and burning tires. Witnesses also reported similar clashes near the town of Al-Khalil (Hebron).
On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump at the White House along with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unveiled his plan to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
However, there was no Palestinian representative, whom Trump referring to Quds as “Israel’s inherent capital”.
Trump’s so-called peace plan unilaterally reverses previous UN resolutions on the Palestinian issue and drew criticism for giving Israel almost everything it asked for.
