In Video - Crowded protest in Ramallah against US 'Deal of the Century'

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Hundreds of Palestinians renewed on Monday their complete rejection of the 'Deal of the Century' that is being proposed by the United States administration.

Hundreds marched across the streets of Ramallah City in the central West Bank protesting the US deal dubbed 'Deal of the Century' and in support of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Protesters repeated slogans in support of the Palestinian leadership in its stand against the deal.

Deputy Head of the Fatah movement Mahmoud al-Alul, member of the movement’s Central Committee Jamal Muheisen and the governor of the Ramallah and al-Bireh district Laila Ghannam took part in the march.

Al-Alul said during a speech that “we do not want your aid, we want a Palestinian state.”

The 'Deal of the Century' peace plan proposed by the US suggests that the Palestinians can build their own Jerusalem from areas surrounding the city of villages and neighborhoods.

The plan also calls for keeping borders and security under Israeli control, while it keeps Israeli settlements final borders to be discussed in later negotiations.
