The plan, known as ‘Deal of the Century’ was released by US President Donald Trump on January 28, during a press conference at the White House with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by his side.
According to Trump’s plan, the US will officially recognize Israel’s illegal Jewish settlements in the occupied territories; Jerusalem will be the “undivided capital of Israel”; Gaza will have to be demilitarized and “there shall be no right of return” for Palestinian refugees.
