GAZA, Jan 28 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump's statements on his Mideast plan are "aggressive" and his proposals for Jerusalem are "nonsense", an official with the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas said on Tuesday.

"Trump's statement is aggressive and it will spark a lot of anger," Sami Abu Zuhri, whose Hamas group rules in the Gaza Strip, told Reuters.

"Trump's statement about Jerusalem is nonsense and Jerusalem will always be a land for the Palestinians ... The Palestinians will confront this deal and Jerusalem will remain a Palestinian land," Abu Zuhri added. (Reporting by Nidal al-Mughrabi in Gaza, Writing by Rami Ayyub)
