TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Thousands rally around the world to denounce the US-sponsored meeting in Bahrain’s capital of Manama, where Washington was expected to reveal details of its initiative, called ‘Deal of the Century.’
Thousands of pro-Palestine protesters in Palestine’s occupied West Bank, Germany, Morocco, Italy, Jordan and many other countries took to the streets to denounce a US-sponsored meeting in Bahrain, the so-called Middle East peace plan.
Starting on Tuesday, the workshop in Manama saw attendees discussing what the US has described as the financial component of its plan to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
The two-day event, which is led by Jared Kushner, US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, is boycotted by the Palestinian leadership.
Palestinian leaders say the gathering circumvents a political settlement based on a two-state solution, describing it as an ill-fated attempt by the US administration and some of its Middle Eastern allies – including Israel and several Arab countries – to “liquidate” the Palestinian cause.
A number of Arab countries, including Jordan, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, are sending delegates to the event.
