Palestinians remain committed to ending the Israeli occupation.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas says “a thousand no’s” to the Mideast peace plan announced by President Donald Trump, which strongly favors Israel.

Abbas says: “After the nonsense that we heard today we say a thousand no’s to the Deal of The Century.”

He said the Palestinians remain committed to ending the Israeli occupation and establishing a state with its capital in east Jerusalem.

A senior Hamas official said Tuesday that the group rejects the “conspiracies” announced by the US and Israel and that “all options are open” in responding to the Trump administration’s newly unveiled peace plan, which heavily favors Israel.

“We are certain that our Palestinian people will not let these conspiracies pass. So, all options are open. The (Israeli) occupation and the US administration will bear the responsibility for what they did,” senior Hamas official Khalil Al Hayya said as he participated in one of several protests that broke out across the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
