Palestinians hold rally in Baqa against Trump’s plan of ‘Deal of century’

TEHRAN, Feb. 01 (MNA) – Large crowds of people in Baqa in the northern West Bank held a massive rally on Saturday in condemnation of Trump administration’s peace plan of ‘Deal of century’.

Hundreds of Palestinians in Baqa held a demonstration on Saturday following the announcement of the so-called ‘Deal of the Century’ promoted by the US President Donald Trump, carrying placards and occasionally shouting slogans.

The demonstrators chanted ‘No to the Deal of the Century’ and ‘Palestine not for Sale’ and blamed US and Zionist regime for instability and chaos in the region.

Trump on Tuesday unveiled his so-called deal of the century, negotiated with Israel but without the Palestinians present.

Palestinian leaders, who severed all ties with the US in late 2017 after Trump controversially recognized Jerusalem al-Quds as the capital of the Israeli regime, immediately rejected the plan, with President Mahmoud Abbas saying it “belongs to the dustbin of history.”

Following the unveiling, thousands of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and the besieged Gaza Strip took to the streets to strongly condemn the plan.

Meanwhile, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani slammed the deal as “the most despicable plan of the century.”

The plan also raised strong condemnation from Bahrain, Syria and Lebanon among other countries.
