The president of United States Donald Trump Tuesday laid down his plan for resolving the long statured Palestinian conflict. However to the biasness of the plan, Palestine has opposed the “peace” stance of the US president.
U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday proposed creating a Palestinian state as part of a Middle East peace plan, drawing Palestinian condemnation for imposing strict conditions and agreeing to let Israel maintain control of long-contested West Bank settlements.
Trump announced his plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace at a White House event with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu standing at his side. It includes what Trump called a four-year stoppage by Israel on new settlement activity.
Although Trump’s stated aim was to end decades of conflict, the plan he radical favored Israel, underscored by the absence of Palestinians from Trump’s announcement.
It seemed unlikely to immediately advance Israeli-Palestinian talks that broke down in 2014, but the plan was called “an important starting point for a return to negotiations” by the United Arab Emirates. Saudi Arabia and Egypt also offered encouraging statements.
PROTESTS ERUPT IN WEST BANK FOLLOWING’S TRUMP’S PEACE PROPOSITION
Israeli soldiers injured 10 Palestinians during protests in the West Bank after U.S. President Donald Trump announced his Middle East peace plan Tuesday.
The announcement of the long-awaited proposal on Palestine and Israel by Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House was met with anger.
The Palestine Red Crescent Society said Israeli soldiers intervened at the northern entrance of the city of Al-Bireh with plastic bullets and tear gas grenades.
The statement said five people were injured by plastic bullets, three suffered burns and two were affected by the tear gas.
The so-called peace plan unilaterally annuls previous UN resolutions on the Palestinian issue and gives Israel pretty much everything it has been demanding.
Thousands of protesters took to the streets in various parts of Palestine and Amman, Jordan in reaction to the plan’s formal rollout.
The hashtag “FreePalestine” also quickly became the top world trend on Twitter.
