A Palestinian protester was shot dead in the West Bank on Friday as Palestinian and U.S. leaders blamed each other for violence that erupted after President Donald Trump unveiled a Middle East Peace plan that Palestinians rejected as one sided.
Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces have repeatedly clashed since the peace proposals were unveiled by Trump, with Israel’s prime minister at his side, the sources of Reuters said.
On Friday, mourners had gathered in the occupied West Bank for the funeral of a Palestinian police officer who was shot dead in the unrest a day earlier. Palestinian authorities said he was killed by Israeli gunfire. Israel has not commented.
The Israeli army said dozens of Palestinian rioters had hurled rocks and fire bombs at troops, and soldiers had identified a Palestinian who threw a firebomb and “responded with fire in order to remove the threat.”
“The Palestinian people will not allow the ‘Deal of the Century’ to pass,” said Mohammed Barakeh, waving a Palestinian flag in Bil’in, referring to the U.S. peace deal.
Earlier on Jan 24,US President Donald Trump said that he will soon unveil his long-awaited peace plan for the Middle East.
US President will soon release the plan before Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits the US next week. He is likely to meet Netanyahu’s election opponent Benny Gantz next week.
Donald Trump said while talking to media that People of Palestinians may oppose the plan, but it will be helpful for them.
US President Donald Trump said, “It’s a great plan,” “It’s a plan that really would work.”
