'Will not Pass': Palestinian Leader Abbas Rejects Trump's Plan

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has pledged that the Middle East plan unveiled by US President Donald Trump will "not pass" as it aims to end the Palestinian cause, Al-Jazeera reports.

"After the nonsense that we heard today, we say a thousand no's to the 'Deal of The Century'," Abbas said on Tuesday at a news conference in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.

He said the Palestinians remain committed to ending the Israeli occupation and establishing a state with its capital in East Jerusalem.

Abbas held an emergency meeting with other Palestinian factions, including Hamas, to discuss a unified response to the plan.

Abbas rejected the deal before it was announced saying the US was hopelessly biased towards Israel.
