Palestinians protest Trump plan in Gaza City

Thousands of Palestinians are protesting in Gaza City ahead of the Trump administration’s announcement of its peace plan, which is expected to strongly favor Israel.

The protesters burn pictures of US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and raise a banner reading “Palestine is not for sale.”

During the rally, Gaza’s Hamas rulers express rare support for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas of the rival Fatah movement, welcoming his call for a broad meeting of Palestinian factions.

Senior Hamas official Khalil al-Hayya says Hamas and “all the factions” will join the meeting, planned for after the Trump plan is announced later Tuesday. He says: “When we are united, neither Netanyahu nor Trump dare to take away our rights.”
