GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Western diplomatic sources unveiled Feb. 4 to Al-Hayat newspaper new details on the “deal of the century,” in which Palestinians will have their own “city of Jerusalem” by building new villages and neighborhoods. This is combined with the establishment of a Palestinian state that includes over half of the West Bank area, all of the Gaza Strip and some neighborhoods in Jerusalem.
