Donald Trump's peace plan is 'nonsense', Sami Abu Zuhri Hamas
Hamas official said that Donald Trump's statements on the peace plan were 'offensive' and that the US president's suggestions for Jerusalem were 'nonsense'.
Sami Abu Zuhri, who leads the Hamas group in the Gaza Strip, told Reuters: "Donald Trump's statement is offensive and will cause severe anger."
"Donald Trump's statement about Jerusalem is nonsense and Jerusalem will always be a land for Palestinians," he said.
He said Palestinians would fight the deal and Jerusalem would remain Palestinian land.
Earlier, the Palestinian Authority (PA) warned US President Donald Trump's announcement of a peace plan for the Middle East, saying Israel and the US should not violate international law that our people do not accept.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's spokesman Nabil Abu Rodina said there was no contact with Donald Trump's administration, no peace deal could be implemented without the approval of the Palestinian people and leadership.
