Hundreds of Palestinians on Thursday have marched against visit of the U.S. political delegation which is expected to arrive in Ramallah city today to meet with President Mahmoud Abbas, as part of the so-called USA efforts to launch Palestinian-Israeli negotiations.

CHANG: So Kushner is expected to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today.

Kushner, a 36-year-old real estate developer with little experience of global diplomacy or political negotiation, arrived in Israel with US Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt on Wednesday after meeting His Majesty King Abdullah and other Arab leaders in the Gulf and Egypt.

After negotiations in Israel, the US delegation is also scheduled to hold talks with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

The trio, which is looking to make inroads on a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, will arrive in Israel on Wednesday night.

In his first visit to the region, Trump, together with Kushner and other members of the administration, visited the Gulf states and Israel.

In a statement sent by email, with the headline "Trump Admin becoming Obstacle to Middle East Peace", the group's president, Jeremy Ben-Ami, said that by taking up such a stance, the administration was hurting its own efforts to reach peace.

Yet a USA delegation on the ground seeking to salvage peace talks between the two sides now faces increasing pressure to take a stand, with Palestinian Authority leadership, in particular, insistent that Trump recognize the two-state solution as the only viable path forward for peace.

The president went to Saudi Arabia and Israel during his first post-inauguration trip overseas and has expressed a personal commitment to reaching a deal that has eluded his Republican and Democratic predecessors.

"We are not going to state what the outcome has to be", Nauert explained. Extremists on both sides have been trying to discredit the two-state vision since it was internationally adopted.

The crisis ended after the Islamic Waqf, the body that governs the al-Aqsa compound, told Palestinians to stop the boycott of the site following Israel's decision to remove its security restrictions. Indeed, the situation on the ground in the West Bank heartland of the envisioned Palestinian state has deteriorated, according to the left-wing Israeli Peace Now movement, which monitors settlement activity.

But at the same time, Majdalani said they could also unilaterally declare Palestinian statehood.

However, Israel has been building settlements deep within territory that the Palestinians want for their future state.

Commenting on the visit, former National Security Adviser Maj.

"So I am happy to see you and the effort you're leading on behalf of the [US] President [Donald Trump] with Jason [Greenblatt] and other members of your team", the prime minister said.
