Deal of century to expedite removal of Israel: Iranian adviser

Tasnim – A defense adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said the US-initiated plan for Palestine, known as deal of the century, is going to accelerate the process of elimination of the Zionist regime from the region.

Addressing a cultural conference in the city of Arak on Friday, Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said the deal of the century reveals the collapse of the US’ dignity in the region.

“If the Americans reviewed the history of their activities in Palestine, they would definitely not take such measure, because this move has come from the disabled mind of Trump,” the former defense minister of Iran noted.

He also advised the US president to refer to the history to realize that the era of thuggery is over and that “the deal of the century is going to facilitate the process of elimination of the Zionist regime from the region.”

Deal of the century is the greatest threat to the US president and his administration, General Dehqan added.

Last week, Donald Trump unveiled his long-delayed Middle East plan, a proposal Palestinian leaders called a “conspiracy” that “will not pass”.

Following Trump’s announcement, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said “a thousand no’s to the plan.

The American plan has sparked widespread international condemnation.

The deal of century ploy, fronted by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, had already been rejected by the Palestinians, who say the White House’s policies have been blatantly biased in favor of Israel.
