Trump and Netanyahu to announce Middle East peace plan on Tuesday

"We are running out of choices and all options on how to respond to this deal are now on the table".

"This map will more than double the Palestinian territory and provide a Palestinian capital in eastern Jerusalem where America will proudly open an embassy", Trump said.

"Today, Israel takes a big step towards peace", Mr Trump told a White House news conference, standing alongside visiting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as he revealed key points of a plan already resoundingly rejected by Palestinian leaders.

Both Netanyahu and Gantz have expressed their approval of the plan.

While Trump was set to brief Netanyahu and Gantz, Palestinian leaders said they had had no communication with the USA administration.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has said Washington can no longer be regarded as an honest mediator, accusing it of pro-Israel bias. The plan allows for the Palestinians to call their capital "al-Quds", using the Arabic term for Jerusalem, but includes no significant part of East Jerusalem and is well short of what the Palestinians would ever accept as their portion of the holy city.

"The new plot aimed against Palestine is bound to fail", and could lead the Palestinians to a "new phase in their struggle" against Israel, Haniya said in a statement.

Egypt urged Israelis and Palestinians to "carefully study" the plan and said it appreciates the administration's efforts.

Trump's plan calls for Palestinians to be able to return to a future state of Palestine and creates a "generous compensation fund", one of the officials said.

Blue and White leader Benny Gantz, who met with Trump on Monday, said voters should not elect a candidate too busy fighting legal battles to run the country.

Having both Israeli leaders present removes the domestic Israeli political tensions, said a USA source familiar with internal deliberations.

"They say that's the hardest of all deals". Trump's so-called "peace deal" doesn't come close, and will only perpetuate the conflict.

Abbas said Monday: "I was told I'll pay a heavy price for my foolish behavior". We committed such mistakes when we withdrew from the Gaza Strip, 15 years ago, without coordinating with the Palestinian leadership.

Palestinian prime minister Mohammad Shtayyeh on Jan 27 asked the global community to boycott the proposal, saying it "doesn't constitute a basis for resolving the conflict". He was indicted on counts of fraud, breach of trust and bribery in November in three separate cases. He denies any wrongdoing.

"This is an opportunity to change the subject and to demonstrate that there are important things that need to be done".

These include breaking with worldwide diplomatic consensus to recognize the disputed city of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which were seized from neighboring Syria, and ending opposition to Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian land. He had previously seen it as interference in the vote.
