At the entrances of a number of Palestinian cities in the West Bank, controversial roadside warning signs were placed by the right-wing Regavim Movement to warn drivers and motorists against the entry to what would be a Palestinian State in line with President Donald Trump’s peace plan.

The signs read in Arabic, Hebrew and English the following text: “Warning! You are entering the state of Palestine (see Trump Peace Plan).”

According to Channel 7, an Israeli settler information website, the signs are part of an intense campaign by Regavim to warn Israelis that the Trump administration’s “Peace to Prosperity” plan still needs work before Israel can really accept it as a working plan of action.

“If we agree to the 'Deal of the Century' map, the Gaza model will be reproduced in Israeli communities," said Meir Deutsch, Director General of Regavim.
