TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah rejected US President Donald Trump’s Middle East peace plan as a means to destroy Palestinians’ rights, and accused Arab states of being complicit in a “deal of shame” that bodes ill for the region.
The most dangerous element of Trump’s vision for resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was the naturalization of Palestinian refugees in Arab states, Hezbollah said.
“The settlement project under this deal is one of the biggest dangers and aims to do away with the right of return … and to create social and demographic tension and sedition that only serve the enemy’s interests and expansionist goals,” the movement said in a statement, Reuters reported.
“Hezbollah condemns and rejects the deal of shame that the savage Trump administration launched against the Palestinian people, their land, their holy sites and their legitimate and natural rights,” the resistance group said.
“This deal would not have happened without the complicity and betrayal of several Arab regimes who are secret and public partners in this conspiracy,” it added, without naming the countries.
On Tuesday night, Trump, during a joint presser with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, unveiled his long-delayed Middle East plan. He said the plan envisages the city as the Israeli regime’s “undivided capital.”
Following Trump’s announcement, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said “a thousand no’s” to the plan.
The American plan has sparked widespread international condemnation.
