BEIRUT, Hundreds of protesters demonstrated near the U.S. embassy in Awkar, Mount Lebanon, against the Middle East peace plan announced by U.S. President, Donald Trump.
Protesters chanted slogans against the U.S., saying, the Palestinian cause is the cause of the whole Middle East.
Demonstrators also held the Lebanese and Palestinian flags, while calling upon all Arabs to take to the streets, to revolt against Trump’s announcement.
Trump unveiled, on Jan 28, together with Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, from the White House, the peace plan, known as the Deal of the Century, which would give Israel full control of the settlements and recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital.
Trump’s announcement prompted thousands of Palestinians to demonstrate in Gaza against the plan.
Top Lebanese officials also criticised the announcement, including President, Michel Aoun, who called the Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, expressing Lebanon’s solidarity with the Palestinians, facing the Deal of the Century.
