US Mideast peace plan to be announced soon: Kushner

Kushner says will publish Mideast plan 'soon,' newspaper says

"The actual details of the deal are between the Israelis and the Palestinians, but the economic plan we are working on will extend to the Jordanian and Egyptian people as well", said Kushner.

Palestinian officials, who want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future state, accused Mr Kushner of trying to undermine Mr Abbas and what they described as their leader's moderate camp.

He went on to speculate that Abbas has referred to the administration's trip to the region as a "waste of time" indicates Palestinian leadership is concerned the people may approve of his deal, but said he remains open to a meeting with Abbas.

He told Palestinian newspaper Al Quds in an interview published on Sunday, that he doubted whether the Palestinian president was willing or able to seal a deal.

The article was published after the White House confirmed that Kushner and Trump's Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt met on Saturday in Jerusalem with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and U.S. Ambassador David Friedman "to continue their discussions that began on Friday".

Any peace plan would face major obstacles, including the increasingly dire humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip, internal Palestinian divisions and recent cross-border violence between Gaza's Hamas rulers and Israel.

Since 2002, a quartet of Middle East peace negotiators has been assigned to promote peace efforts but has failed to get any results.Palestinian leaders have refused to meet with the Trump team since the president recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December. "He has his talking points which have not changed in the last 25 years".

Dr. Ashraf al-Qedra, the spokesperson of the Health Ministry in Gaza, said 120 of the 206 wounded Palestinians received treatment in filed clinics, and 86 others, including 44 who were shot with live fire, were rushed to several hospitals in the Gaza Strip; seven of them are in very serious conditions.

"They are working and trying to work hard in a regime change, because Palestinian leadership under the leadership of President Abbas wants genuine, lasting, comprehensive peace, based on global law", Erekat added.

The global community, he added, "is getting frustrated with Palestinian leadership and not seeing many actions that are constructive towards achieving peace". The interview was headlined, "I am ready to work with President Abbas, if he wishes".

It did not elaborate, but added that at the meeting Netanyahu "expressed his gratitude for President Trump's support of Israel". He made no mention of a Palestinian state arising alongside Israel.

The Kushner family has also helped fund Israeli settlements in the West Bank - a fact that the senior advisor left off his financial records when he filed with the Office of Government Ethics past year.

The Israeli military said it responded with airstrikes Wednesday after some 45 rockets were fired toward Israel by Palestinian militants in Gaza.

PLO Secretary-General Saeb Erekat said Kushner's interview "again illustrates the USA refusal to talk substance, to mention Palestinian rights or a Palestinian state".

Al-Hayat al-Jadida quoted Fatah describing the USA deal as "a conspiracy" that is being pushed under a humanitarian guise, but said it will not pass.

It has always been an insurmountable sticking point, in the Palestinian view, that Jewish settlements built by Israel in the West Bank and East Jerusalem bisect what would become an independent Palestinian state.

Hamas is attempting to create "new rules of engagement" in its war against Israel, as the terrorist organization recognizes that Israel's military will likely avoid direct responses against terrorist cells launching incendiary kites and balloons into Israel territory.
