Legal rights centre Adalah has slammed the Trump administration's "peace plan" for its endorsement of the "forced transfer" of 260,000 Palestinian citizens of Israel.

Israeli Defense Minister Naftali Bennett called on Wednesday for Israel to establish sovereignty over almost a third of the occupied West Bank, acting on US President Donald Trump's announcement of a Middle East peace plan that Palestinians branded apartheid.

Turkey's parliament has condemned the U.S.

He also said the USA proposal violates worldwide law regarding self-determination, the acquisition of land by force and annexation of occupied territories and also denies Palestinians equal rights.

The plan also gave USA recognition of Israel's West Bank settlements - deemed illegal under global law - Israeli sovereignty over the Jordan Valley, and a redrawn, demilitarized Palestinian state that would meet Israel's security requirements.

During the event, Trump referred to Jerusalem as "Israel's undivided capital".

He said the new peace plan would not become the basis of negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians because the Palestinian leaders and public have rejected it.

Erdogan stressed that such a "rogue state" of Israel, which executes innocents on the streets, can never be credible for Turkey.

Despite Palestinians' rejection of the plan and their boycott of Trump, three Gulf Arab states - Oman, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates - attended the White House gathering where Trump announced his plan. Saudi Arabia mostly, you are silent. When will you break your silence? "The same goes for Oman, Bahrain, the Abu Dhabi leadership", Erdogan said in comments to members of his ruling party in Ankara.

Erdogan, who has positioned himself as a global champion for Muslim causes, said Arab nations' stance toward Palestinians was pitiable and countries that failed to speak out would be responsible for "grave results". On Wednesday, Erdogan had said Ankara was losing patience with the assault and said Russian Federation was violating agreements aimed at curbing conflict in the region.
