The US newspaper the Washington Post reported that the Biden administration, along with a small group of partners in the Middle East, is accelerating the completion of a detailed and comprehensive plan to achieve long-term peace between Israel and Palestine. This plan includes a strict timeline for the establishment of a Palestinian state, which could be announced in the coming weeks.

Furthermore, negotiations between the US, Qatar, and Egypt seek a cease-fire and the release of Israeli hostages in Gaza.

The initial ceasefire, which is likely to last at least six weeks, will allow time to announce the proposal, get additional backing, and take the first steps toward its implementation. According to US and Arab officials, this will include the creation of a temporary Palestinian government.

The parties involved are seeking to achieve an agreement before Ramadan, which begins on March 10, out of concern that it may worsen and heighten tensions in Gaza.

Meanwhile, Israeli right-wing ministers Avigdor Lieberman, Itamar Ben-Gvir, and Bezalel Smotrich announced their categorical opposition to the establishment of a Palestinian state.

“1,400 people were killed, and the world wants to grant them a state. It won’t happen!” Ben-Gvir posted on X.

As for Smotrich, he posted on X, “Under no circumstances will we agree to this plan, which essentially claims that the Palestinians deserve a reward for the terrible massacre they committed against us: a Palestinian state with its capital in Jerusalem.”

Furthermore, Lieberman announced that he will request that the State Security Cabinet oppose the establishment of a Palestinian state.

“Today, during the political and security cabinet meeting, I will demand a clear decision that unequivocally states Israel’s opposition to the establishment of a Palestinian state,” he stated.

Lieberman expects clear support from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Benny Gantz, and all other ministers.
