Hamas strongly rejects US "Deal of Century"
(MENAFN) On Friday, a top Hamas leader said that his movement strongly rejects the peace plan, called the Deal of the Century, that U.S. President Donald Trump intends to announce soon.
"In our dictionary, there is nothing called Deal of the Century or even two centuries; we don't know a land that replaces another land. There is East Jerusalem and West Jerusalem," said Mahmoud Zahar.
Zahar was speaking to dozens of Palestinians who were rallying and demonstrating on Friday afternoon east of the southern Gaza Strip city of Khan Younis, close to the border with Israel, where clashes broke out with Israeli soldiers stationed there.
"We will not accept the deal of the century and we will not allow it being implemented," Zahar said, adding that "this deal is a trivial deal, where our legitimate right is irrefutable and we will never give it up."
Zahar said Hamas sends a clear message to every Israeli settle that they "have no homeland here and leave before this land eats you."
