Trump to send Jared Kushner to work on Israel-Palestinian peace

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner speaks to reporters outside the White House in Washington

Kushner fined for late filing of financial disclosures

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed President Donald Trump's efforts to revive the diplomatic process between Israel and the Palestinians.

He added that with Olmert "we were on the verge of an agreement but eventually he had to resign over corruption".

The delegation, including US President Donald Trump's special Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, and deputy national security adviser Dina Powell, is due to arrive in the region in the coming weeks.

The White House announced over the weekend that Kushner, Greenblatt and Dina Powell, the USA deputy national security advisor for strategy, will be traveling to the region in the coming days to meet with leaders of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Qatar, Jordan, Egypt, Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA).

In the last five head to head records, these two teams had met in English Premier League , English Carabao Cup and English FA Cup.


The PA plans to resume its appeal to the International Court of Justice (ICC) in The Hague, alleging that senior Israeli leaders and military officers have committed war crimes, the Palestinian official said, adding that the PA will unilaterally pursue admission into more international organizations-a process Abbas had suspended when Trump was elected USA president.

Kushner, who serves as a senior adviser to his father-in-law, was charged with helping to broker a deal between Israelis and Palestinians after Trump took office. He promised to bring "the ultimate deal" between Israel and the Palestinians but did not specify how he would do it.

Speaking Sunday with the London-based Arabic-language newspaper A-Sharq al-Awsat, a Ramallah official said on condition of anonymity, "The fate of Netanyahu is not in his own hands, so entering talks with Israel will be an exhausting adventure".

After the incident, metal detectors were installed at the entrances to the flashpoint compound, leading to mass protests and violent clashes.
