On Tuesday, Palestinian, Jordanian, Turkish and German cities witnessed demonstrations rejecting the US President Donald Trump's peace plan in the Middle East. The demonstrations are scheduled to continue today in several European cities.
In Gaza, rallies took place in a number of cities in the Gaza Strip, rejecting the plan announced by Trump, accompanied by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, from Washington.
The demonstrators considered that the plan ignores Palestinian rights and principles, and violates all international agreements, especially with regard to Jerusalem and the right of return, and stressed that it shows what they described as the size of the American collusion with the Israeli occupation state.
Dozens of Palestinians demonstrated in Haifa, carrying banners reading "Yes to national unity, enough for Oslo and its aftermath" and "The plot of the century will not pass from Haifa."
In the cities of Ramallah, Tulkarem, Jenin and Bethlehem in the West Bank, several demonstrations took place, which roamed the streets, and the demonstrators announced their rejection of the century deal and their support for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, and loudspeakers in Palestinian mosques began to open the Noble Qur’an to mourn the announcement of the deal.
The sit-in protesters in Tulkarm burned pictures of President Trump, and announced a commercial strike this afternoon, and the Palestinian Coordination Committee in the city of Hebron called for the launch of its protest activities today.
The Palestinian Red Crescent announced yesterday that 22 protesters were injured, after the occupation forces used tear gas and rubber bullets against the demonstrators in the town of Al-Eizariya, east of Jerusalem and Al-Bireh, and about two hundred clashes with the Israeli army near Ramallah.
In Jordan, popular and youth parties and events organized a protest stand in front of the American embassy in Amman to coincide with the announcement of the plan, and the protesters denounced what they described as the American bias of the Israeli occupation and its attempt to liquidate the Palestinian issue, and confiscating the Palestinian people's right to self-determination and in occupied Jerusalem.
On the other hand, activists demonstrated in front of the American embassy in Ankara and the American consulate in Istanbul, and stressed that they did not recognize what they described as the Zionist entity, as they carried banners that read phrases like "Jerusalem for Muslims" and "We are vigilant for Palestine".
Activists gave speeches in Ankara, stating that the plan "came to implement the Greater Israel project that was implemented for a century ago in the Middle East."
Al-Jazeera Net correspondent in Berlin said that a large number of members of the Palestinian and Arab community and German solidarity raised the Palestinian flags in front of the Washington embassy as soon as Trump finished announcing his plan, where they chanted slogans expressing their complete rejection of the plan, and raised banners affirming that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Palestinian state, and that The right of return is not negotiable.
The president of the Overseas Palestinian Conference, Majed Al-Zeer, said in a speech that Trump, like his predecessors, cannot skip the Palestinian right and exceed its demands, calling on German Chancellor Angela Merkel to take a position that rejects the plan.
Other events are scheduled in many European cities, and in all locations of the Palestinian people on Wednesday, rejecting the deal of the century, according to Majed Al-Zeer.
