Shameful ‘deal of century’ doomed to fail like its predecessors:” Iranian Brigadier General Esmaeil Qaan

Tehran(ANN)-Iranian new commander of the Quds Force of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has strongly criticized US President Trump.

General Esmaeil Qaani, has blasted US President Donald Trump’s so-called deal of the century on Israeli-Palestinian conflict, saying the “shameful” plot is doomed to failure just as Washington’s previous attempts.

In a phone conversation with the leaders of Palestinian resistance groups on Sunday, Brigadier General Esmaeil Qaani reaffirmed the Islamic Republic’s strong support for the oppressed Palestinians in the face of Trump’s so-called peace plan and the plots that aims to target Palestinians’ historical rights, saying that the “shameful deal of the century is dead on arrival and just as previous peace plans, it is doomed to fail.”

Stressing that Iran’s policy of providing overwhelming support for the Palestinian resistance has not changed, particularly after the US assassination of top Iranian general, Qassem Soleimani, in Iraq, Qaani said, “We will stand with the Palestinian nation and the axis of resistance till the collapse of the US and Zionism.”

The Quds Force commander added, “American statesmen only seek to appease Zionist criminals and will spare no crime and act of treason to this end.”

‘Palestinian groups will foil the deal’

During the phone call with the commander of the IRGC’s Quds Force, Ziad al-Nakhala, secretary general of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement, expressed gratitude for the Islamic Republic’s stance on supporting the Palestinian nation and resistance groups, saying, “The Palestinian nation and resistance groups will foil the so-called deal of the century and the entire plots against Palestine’s historical rights.”

Al-Nakhala added that the “Palestinian nation has no other option but resistance against this disgraceful deal.”

Ismail Haniyeh, head of the Political Bureau of Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, said for his part that all “Palestinian groups are unanimous in their rejection of the despicable plan, the so-called deal of the century.

Haniyeh added that the Islamic Republic of Iran’s positions and approaches in support of the Palestinian resistance “will boost our morale and determination for the liberation of Palestine.”

Defying international outcry, Trump on Tuesday announced the general provisions of the plan at the White House with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his side.

The scheme — which all Palestinian groups have unanimously rejected — largely meets Israel’s demands in the decades-old conflict, while creating a Palestinian state with limited control over its own security and borders.

It enshrines Jerusalem al-Quds as “Israel’s undivided capital” and allows the regime to annex settlements in the occupied West Bank and the Jordan Valley, among other controversial terms.

Palestinian leaders, who severed all ties with Washington in late 2017 after Trump recognized Jerusalem al-Quds as the capital of the Israeli regime, immediately rejected the plan, with President Mahmoud Abbas saying it “belongs to the dustbin of history.”

Thousands of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and besieged Gaza Strip poured out onto the street in immediate condemnation of the plan.

Muslims all across the world have also expressed solidarity with the Palestinian cause and denounced the Trump’s proposed plan.
