On Friday, the White House said Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and his senior adviser Jason Greenblatt would soon be sent to the region to hold meetings with regional leaders and discuss a "path to substantive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks", Xinhua news agency reported.

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). The statement also referenced the recent crisis surrounding the Temple Mount, known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif, saying it had created an opportunity "to continue discussions and the pursuit of peace that began early in his administration". The senior American delegation will meet with local leaders in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

Moreover, the Palestinians claim both American and Israeli officials have essentially agreed that a peace process based on a two-state solution "no longer exists".

The official was referring to Ehud Olmert, prime minister of Israel from 2006-2009, who eventually went to prison on charges of corruption, making any progress he might have made in his peace talks with the Palestinians null and void.

While Israel welcomed the US' peace efforts, the PA said it was "pessimistic" about the US' ability to reignite the peace process, and threatened to resume unilateral initiatives in the worldwide arena.

Palestinian organizations have called for a series of protests across the country in rejection of statements by the White House about U.S. President Donald Trump's intention to "mediate" the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
