Palestinians protest US ‘Peace to Prosperity’ plan

Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza protested the US "Peace to Prosperity" plan, as it ignores their basic demands of freedom and dignity.

Hundreds of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza took to the streets June 24-26 to protest the US-proposed “Peace to Prosperity” plan introduced last week. The protests took place at the same time as the Bahrain economic workshop in Manama, where US Middle East envoys met with select Arab leaders to discuss the first part of the Donald Trump administration’s proclaimed “deal of the century.”

Rallies and marches, organized by the Palestinian Authority (PA), took place June 24 in the major West Bank cities of Hebron, Ramallah, Nablus and Jenin as well as in Gaza. Signs declaring “Trump’s plan is a failure” and “Manama meeting denies our right to self-determination” could be seen in Ramallah, along with a cardboard coffin reading “the deal of the century” and “decisions of the Arab League.”
