Netanyahu: Trump Won’t Roll Out Mideast Peace Plan Before ‎Israeli Election

JNS.org – The Trump administration will not present its long-awaited Middle East peace plan before the Israeli ‎election, set for April 9, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin ‎Netanyahu said on Monday. ‎ ‎

The rollout ‎for the plan, which US President ‎Donald Trump has dubbed the “deal of the century,” ‎has been postponed several times. The deal is being ‎crafted by Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, and US Special Representative ‎for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt.‎

Netanyahu, who is on a state visit to Brazil, told ‎reporters that Washington seeks to present the plan “at a time they believe would be the most conducive ‎to its success. They believe that presenting it ‎during election time would undermine its chances.” ‎

Also on Monday, a senior official on the prime ‎minister’s entourage to Brazil told Israel Hayom ‎that there are growing assessments in Israel that ‎the strikes on Iranian assets in Syria, which ‎foreign media often attributes to the Israeli Air Force, ‎have been successful in pushing the Islamic republic ‎out of the war-torn country. ‎

He also said that it appears that “Operation Northern ‎Shield” to eliminate the grid of Hezbollah terror ‎tunnels snaking under the Israel-Lebanon border has ‎prevented a war with the Iranian-backed Shi’ite ‎terrorist group. ‎
