Iran’s supreme leader said on Monday that a U.S. plan to end the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians through development fueled by international investment was a “dangerous plot” to destroy Palestinian identity with money.

“This dangerous plot aims to eliminate Palestinian identity among the Palestinian people … This is the main point that one should resist, and not allow them to eliminate the Palestinian identity using money,” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said, according to his website.

On Sunday, it was reported that the White House Mideast peace team led by Jared Kushner will soon be returning to the region to follow up on plans discussed at the recent Bahrain conference.
