Crown Prince MBS is mediating between Israel and the Palestinians, and the US-Israel side has decided on a two-state solution with a US embassy in Ramallah, thus suggesting that Ramallah will be the proposed capital of Palestine.

The Israeli Maariv daily reported Tuesday that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is leading mediation between the Palestinian and US sides to break the stalemate between the two and announce a Palestinian initiative, without mentioning any of its details.

According to the newspaper, Trump will announce the US initiative toward the Palestinians at the annual AIPAC conference in Washington this week, in which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will participate, where the paper predicted that there is an Israeli-American consensus on the matter.

Maariv added that the US administration is expected to announce Washington’s recognition of the two-state solution and open a US embassy in Ramallah. In addition, President Trump is expected to announce further steps to build confidence between the two sides.
