Senate President Faisal Al-Fayez decided to hold a closed-door meeting on Wednesday, January 29, to discuss the U.S. President Donald Trump's peace plan known as the "Deal of the Century".

During the meeting, the Senate is expected to discuss what will be unveiled, which will be published by the White House this evening, as US President Donald Trump announced yesterday.

The peace plan is expected to propose a dramatic remapping of the West Bank while offering Palestinians a pathway to statehood if they meet a set of tests, the Washington Post published. 

The package is expected to propose a redrawn border between Israel and the West Bank that would incorporate large Jewish settlements into Israel proper, while continuing some forms of Israeli security control over the territory Israel seized in 1967 and has occupied since, according to two people familiar with the plan who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the proposal has not been released.
