The EU foreign policy chief's office warned that the alliance would not let any ‘Israeli’ steps aimed at annexing West Bank territories "pass unchallenged" in an apparent jab at US President Donald Trump’s so-called ‘Deal of the Century’.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, Josep Borrell also said that some of the plan's provisions were different "from internationally agreed upon parameters."

He urged the Zionist entity and the Palestinian factions to avoid taking unilateral actions that could stir the tensions up and called on them to "re-engage."

The Zionist Foreign Ministry responded that a statement like that, especially coming after Borrell's visit to Iran, was regrettable and odd, adding that such conduct could only result in less of a role for the EU to play in the process.

The exchange comes ahead of Jared Kushner's presentation of the plan to the UN Security Council, and amid the outcry from the Palestinians, who rejected the plan with "a thousand no's."
