Palestinian PM Mohammad Shtayyeh urged the international community to boycott the peace plan of US President Donald Trump, AFP reported.

"This a plan to protect Trump from impeachment and protect (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu from prison. It is not a Middle East peace plan," Shtayyeh told a cabinet meeting.

"This plan gives Israel sovereignty over Palestinian territory," he said.

Trump is expected to present a plan to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict after meeting in Washington with Netanyahu and his political rival Benny Gantz.

"We call on the international community to not be partners in this because it contravenes international law," Shtayyeh told the Palestinian cabinet. "The rights of the Palestinian people are not for sale."

Palestinians were not invited to Washington. Palestine severed all ties with the Trump administration because of its pro-Israeli stance. Trump's plan is expected to be the most favorable for Israel ever proposed by the United States.

Shtayyeh said President Mahmoud Abbas will convene a meeting of the Palestinian leadership to discuss the best ways to respond to the plan.

Several hundred Palestinians protested against Trump's plan on Monday in Gaza.
