Some Palestinian ex-prisoners in Gaza say their salaries withheld

"There is no future for us as long as Israel is in this area", Sayed said, glancing across the green hills just outside the Palestinian village of Burin, which is hemmed in by two Israeli settlements.

According to sources who were updated about the details of the meeting, the Israeli policy in reference involves containment measures that included meticulous efforts to differentiate between the Palestinian population and terrorists as well as a complete avoidance of collective punishment.

Palestinians say it stems from anger over decades of Israeli rule in territory they claim for their state.

Palestinians, Israelis and the worldwide community still cling to the two-state solution, the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel, as the means to provide self-determination for Palestinians and end the Israeli occupation of territories conquered 50 years ago during the war launched on June 5th, 1967. After knocking out the air defences of these countries, it occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, as well as the Syrian Golan Heights and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

"I am proud to sponsor this resolution, which reaffirms the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 that states Jerusalem should remain an undivided city and Israel's capital - in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group are celebrated, valued and protected", he said.

Indeed, Israel annexing the West Bank might also be in the interest of the Palestinians. President Trump made this decision to maximize the chances of successfully negotiating a deal between Israel and the Palestinians, fulfilling his solemn obligation to defend America's national security interests.


"I hope that we will find the path to a solution for two states for two peoples".

The organization of more than 200 former top military and security leaders recently launched an advertising campaign centred on a warning that in a single state, Palestinians would soon outnumber Jews. This remains the main alternative to indefinite occupation, continuing colonisation of Palestinian land, repression, and denial of the Palestinian right to self-determination.

After fifty years, the disastrous Pyrrhic repercussions of this military victory are intensifying as the occupation of the West Bank solidifies both on the ground and in the minds of many Israelis, Palestinians, and their leaders.

Former Palestinian foreign minister Nabil Shaath told The Irish Times that in his view Mr Trump "has no idea what this entails".

The number of those who favour the two-state solution has, however, declined since 2014-2016 when support was 59-60 per cent.

The rights group also reported that Tel Aviv tightened restrictions on the movement of people and goods to and from the Gaza Strip, saying the measures "far exceed any conceivable requirement of Israeli security".
