Gaza: The US is getting ready to approve Israel’s “colonial policies” by disregarding Palestinian rights, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki said Friday.
“Throughout those decades, Israeli policies aimed to displace and replace the Palestinian people and ensured confinement of the Palestinians and expansion of the Israeli settlers with as objective of deposition of maximum land with minimum Palestinians,” he said.
US President Donald Trump’s “deal of the century” drew criticism from Malki who said it offered Palestinians “no independence, no sovereignty, no freedom and no justice.”
The PRF former Minister of Information and government spokesperson was referring to Palestinian figures that show more than 650,000 settlers currently live on 164 Jewish-only settlements built illegally throughout the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.
The deal was engineered by Trump’s son-in-law and top advisor, Jared Kusher, who said recently the proposal “will lead to both sides being much better off”.
