The Trump administration will unveil its plan for the future of Israel and the Palestinians on Tuesday, the culmination of three years of secretive work.


The plan is expected to be heavily tilted towards the positions of the Israeli right, but there has as yet been no confirmed information about its contents

On Monday, Trump hosted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before meeting with Kahol Lavan Chairman Benny Gantz, Netanyahu's rival in the upcoming March election. 

It appears that the decision is in light of the peace plan's publication, as well as Israeli proclamations regarding the annexation of the Jordan Valley.

After meeting with senior U.S. officials earlier on Tuesday, the head of the Yesha Council of Settlements, David Elhayani said: "We cannot agree to a plan that will include the formation of a Palestinian state which will pose a threat to the State of Israel and a great danger in the future."

The statement declared that all council heads will not allow a Palestinian state to be formed, even at the price of renouncing sovereignty over the West Bank and Jordan Valley, and called upon Netanyahu and lawmakers not to accept such a deal.
