White House: Israeli TV Report on Peace Plan Not Accurate

US envoy says speculation about plan is 'not helpful'

White House officials have issued a statement on Friday rejecting Israeli Channel 13’s report on the Israeli peace deal, declaring the deal to be “inaccurate,” and saying that “very few people on the planet know what is in it.”

Channel 13’s report cited a “senior American official,” and presented a very broad-brush summary of the plan, including giving the Palestinians a state that included the majority of the occupied West Bank, and some of the Arab neighborhoods of East Jerusalem as their capital city.

Though this fairly unspecific report is in keeping with what most plans could be expected to contain, US special envoy Jason Greenblatt not only rejected the idea, but added that any speculation about what the US plan actually is “is not helpful.”

The Trump Administration has played up this plan as a “deal of the century” from the beginning, but has offered virtually no details of what it would actually contain. There is still no specific timeline for the release of the real plan.
