There is no truth to the reports that the forthcoming U.S. Mideast peace plan includes slicing off a portion of the Sinai Peninsula for the terrorist rulers of Gaza.

Jason Greenblatt, the U.S. Representative for International Negotiations, restated the point in a tweet on Wednesday, lamenting that he was “oddly […] still hearing reports about this.”

“My original tweet still stands,” he wrote, referring to an April 19 message: “Hearing reports our plan includes the concept that we will give a portion of Sinai (which is Egypt’s) to Gaza. False! Please don’t believe everything you read. Surprising and sad to see how people who don’t know what’s in the plan make up and spread fake stories.”

The plan, which has been the subject of numerous previews in the media which its authors have rejected as erroneous, was expected to be released some time after Israel forms a new government, perhaps as early as June.
