Palestinian political groups announced on Sunday the formation of a national committee against US President Donald Trump’s ‘deal of the century’.
The announcement was made during a popular conference held in Gaza.
During the conference, the spokesman of the Popular Resistance Committees, Mohamed Al Burim, said:
“The committee is to lay down a plan to counter the deal which turns its back on all legal, ethical and humanitarian standards and values.”

Last week, US President Donald Trump unveiled his “peace plan” to end the Palestine-Israel conflict. Dubbed the “deal of the century” it has been slammed for giving Israel everything it wants while providing Palestinians no rights, and ensure they are forever subjugated by the occupation.
According to the 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.
