US President Donald Trump announced Thursday, August 13, that Israel and the United Arab Emirates had signed a “historic peace agreement.”

This peace accord was signed under the aegis of the United States. It should allow the two countries to normalize their relations.

According to representatives of the White House, this agreement provides for Israel to suspend its annexation plans in several areas of the West Bank, and will give Muslims in Palestine better access to the El-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, in particular by allowing flights between Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv.

In response to the deal, Hamas spokesman Hazem Qasem told AFP that this normalization “does not serve the Palestinian cause. ”

“This constitutes a blank check for the continued occupation of Palestinian territory,” the Palestinian movement Hamas denounced, adding: “This agreement is rejected and condemned. It does not serve the Palestinian cause but is seen as a continuation of the denial of the rights of the Palestinian people ”
