In an unexpected move last week, Trump said that Serbia and Kosovo had agreed to normalise economic ties as part of US-brokered talks that include Belgrade moving its embassy to Jerusalem, and mutual recognition between Israel and Kosovo.
President Mahmoud Abbas declares end to "agreements and understandings" signed with Israel and US, and turns over responsibility of occupied territories back to Israel, in response to Israel's plan to annex parts of occupied West Bank.
The catastrophe that Palestinians first faced 72 years ago seems to only worsen with time.
"Deal of shame", "aggressive", "the conspiracy", "nonsense" – Palestinians react with fury as US President Trump reveals the controversial map which gives Israel everything it has been demanding.
The so-called peace plan unilaterally annuls previous UN resolutions on the Palestinian issue and gives Israel pretty much everything the Israelis have been demanding.
So-called 'deal of century' aims at killing the two-state solution and usurping Palestinian lands, says the Turkish foreign ministry.
The UN Mideast envoy said the numbers “should be of serious concern to all those who continue to support the establishment of an independent and viable Palestinian state alongside Israel.”
US House said that a two-state solution "can both ensure the state of Israel's survival as a Jewish and democratic state and fulfil the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people for a state of their own."
What is the point of 'international law' when it can be summarily dismissed by the US in service to its ally Israel?
The Israeli right led by Benjamin Netanyahu is having to grab increasingly more land from neighbours in order to shore up support at home.
Palestinians call the planned move a war crime under international law governing the occupied West Bank. Arab League and Jordon say the move would "push the region towards violence."
“This step shows the US government is not only biased toward the Israeli occupation, but is fully aligned with the plans of the extremist Israeli right-wing,” says Palestinian Authority (PA) spokeperson Nabil Abu Rudaineh.
