Trump to reveal peace plan on 71st anniversary of Nakba

April 5, 2019 10:53 A.M. (Updated: April 10, 2019 11:57 A.M.)
WASHINGTON (Ma'an) -- The United States President Donald Trump is most likely to reveal his Middle East peace plan, known as the “Deal of the Century,” on the 71st anniversary of Nakba, on Thursday.

According to Al-Khaleej Online news outlet, the US administration told Arab and Gulf officials that the peace plan would be revealed on May 15th on “Nakba day,” when Palestinians commemorate the Nakba or “catastrophe,” when an estimated 750,000 Palestinians were forcibly expelled from their homes when the state of Israel was created.

On Nakba day, Israel also celebrates its Independence Day.

The news outlet also cited unnamed sources saying that the US administration informed senior Saudi, Emirati, Egyptian, and Jordanian officials about the date of the announcement.

Sources mentioned that the US administration already completed the plan and secured the funds needed to implement its economic policies.

Jared Kushner, a senior White House adviser and son-in-law of the United States President Donald Trump, previously said the US administration would to present the plan following the Israeli legislative election on April 9th.
Kushner stated that both the Israelis and the Palestinians would have to make compromises.

Following the alleged reveal of the “Deal of the Century,” mass protests across the occupied West Bank are expected to take place.

It is noteworthy that the Palestinian Authority (PA) has been boycotting the US administration since December 2017 when US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and then moved the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in May 2018.

Following recent tensions and the US Trump administration's undeniable support for Israel has prompted the Palestinians to cut communication with the US and declared it unfit to be a mediator during the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
