Trump’s ‘deal of century’: 4 neighbourhoods of East Jerusalem to be given to Palestine

Washington: Though Trump administration has not made public the ‘deal of the century’ for resolving Palestine issue, however, Israel sources have claimed that American President Trump will ask the Israel state to vacate 4 neighbourhood areas so that the territory could become the capital of a future Palestinian state.

According to Jerusalem Post, Trump will ask Israel to transfer control of the four neighbourhoods – Jebl Mukabar, Issawiya, Shuafat and Abu Dis – to the Palestinians. US officials communicated the demand to the Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman during his visit to Washington last week, reported Jerusalem Post.

The reports come as the US prepares to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14. It must be noted that the decision has been universally condemned.

On the other hand, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said he would refuse any offer made by the Americans.

Full details of Trump’s plan are expected to be unveiled shortly after the embassy move.
