In a tweet on Wednesday Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said President Donald Trump's Israeli-Palestinian peace plan will never succeed and all Muslim nations will definitely stand up to it.

"To the dismay of U.S. politicians, the satanic, evil US policy about Palestine - the so-called Deal of the century - will never bear fruit, by the grace of God. About the Jewishization of Al-Quds and saying it should be in the hands of the Jews, they’re talking foolishly & unwisely," Khamenei said in his tweet written in English.

A second tweet on the subject read: "The Palestinian nation and all Muslim nations will definitely stand up to them and not allow the so-called Deal of the Century to be realized".

President Trump's peace plan which he has named "Deal of the Century" was unveiled on January 28. The plan proposes the creation of an independent Palestinian state with strict conditions and allows Israel to annex contested Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
