Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - US President Donald Trump is to reveal his peace plan for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict after three years of anticipation.

The proposal is dozens of pages long but little has been revealed about its contents.

It is rumoured that the plan will attempt to persuade the Palestinians to accept Israeli occupation, in what could be a prelude to Israel annexing about half of the occupied West Bank including most of the Jordan Valley, the strategic and fertile easternmost strip of the territory.

Palestinians say the Jordan Valley, nearly 30 per cent of the occupied West Bank, would be a vital part of their future state, as the breadbasket of the West Bank and its border with Jordan.

There is unlikely to be anything for the Palestinians on Jerusalem, the city they want as the capital of any future sovereign state, nor anything on the borders of 1967, which they want as the borders of their state along the lines of demarcation that existed before the Arab-Israeli War, when Israel captured East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza.

Analysts say the plan is likely to formalise US recognition of Israel's occupation of swathes of land.

But the Yesha Council, an umbrella group representing Jewish settlers living in the West Bank, had initially been upbeat about Mr Trump's proposals.

But council leaders then said they had been briefed by US officials on the details, leaving them "very concerned".

"We can't agree to a plan that includes forming a Palestinian state, which will constitute a threat to Israel and a great danger to the future," said council head David Elhayani.

Mr Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, the plan's principal author, launched the first stage in Bahrain in June. It called for a $50 billion investment fund to boost the Palestinian and neighbouring Arab state economies.
