White House prepares investment Proposal in Palestinian Gaza strip

Senior Advisor to United States President Donald Trump, Jared Kushner
 The White House will open the first part of the Israeli – Palestinian peace proposal, which has long awaited. This will be done at the time of international conference in Bahrain at the end of June 2019.

One of the points that became the subject of the proposal was an increased investment plan in the West Bank and Gaza strip, which was administered by the Palestinian Authority or the PLO.

"We think this is an opportunity to display an economic plan that we have discussed long enough and present it in the Middle East," said a senior official from the United States Government as reported by Reuters on Monday, May 20, 2019.

This conference in Bahrain will be held on 25 – 26 June in Manama City and discusses the first stage of the peace plan. The event will involve representatives of employers and corporate executives from Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The event will also be attended by a number of finance ministers.

Trump's Peace team is headed by his daughter-in-law Jared Kushner and regional envoy Jason Greenblatt. They tried to focus on developing economic benefits even though a number of observers felt skeptical of this effort would succeed.

President Trump called this plan of peace a "deal of the century" or agreement this century.  However, a number of Palestinian officials called the plan to contain a bias that benefited Israel.

Regarding the presence of Israeli and Palestinian representatives in this event, another U.S. official was reluctant to confirm. However, some Palestinian business leaders, according to this official, showed interest in attending the conference. The Israeli Ministry of Finance spokesman said, "We haven't yet received his invitation."

Despite the Armistice, Palestinians Killed in the Gaza Strip
  A Palestinian was shot dead by Israel during a new clash on the eastern border of Rafah, the southern Gaza Strip. The victim, Abdullah Abd al-Aal (24) was shot in the abdomen.

This was stated by a spokesman for the Palestinian health ministry as reported by the AFP on Saturday (05/11/2019). The victim was shot in the first protest since last week's deadly attack.

It is known, 13 other demonstrators were shot during demonstrations in various places along the broken border.

Meanwhile, an Israeli military spokesman said about 6,000 people participated in the demonstration. Protesters called for Israel to end the blockade of Gaza for more than a decade.

This week's demonstrations are seen as the main test for a ceasefire agreed between Hamas Islamist rulers and Israel.

For two days, 25 Palestinians were killed including at least nine militants, along with four Israeli civilians. The ceasefire agreement was announced by the Palestinian faction Monday morning.

He mentioned "a number of explosions identified in the Gaza Strip, as well as a number of attempts to approach the fence" which separated the besieged coastal area from Israeli territory.

This week's demonstration is seen as the main test for a ceasefire agreed between Gaza and Israel mediated by Egypt and the United Nations.

Palestinian groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza fired hundreds of rockets at Israel starting Saturday after Israeli forces killed four Palestinians in two separate incidents on May 3.

And since Saturday (4/5), Israeli artillery shelling was directed at 200 civilian buildings in the lane, and Israeli warplanes carried out about 150 attacks, according to the state media office in Gaza.

For three days, 25 Palestinians were killed along with four Israelis.

The ceasefire agreement was announced by Palestinian factions on Monday (6/5) morning.

The protest organizers called for a massive demonstration on May 15 to mark the 71st anniversary of what Palestinians call the Nakba, or "catastrophe", when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled or were driven out of their homes in 1948 on their founding Israel.
