Both Kushner and Greenblatt will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and P.A. President Mahmoud Abbas at his headquarters in Ramallah.

President Trump has placed Kushner at the center of his efforts to secure a Middle East peace deal. According to the White House official, who gave details about the trip on the condition of anonymity, Greenblatt was scheduled to arrive in the Middle East on Monday and Kushner will travel Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The official sought to temper expectations, saying that Kushner and Greenblatt are hoping to "continue conversations" with both sides but noting that an accord nearly certainly would require ongoing discussions.

Commenting on the new figures, Peace Now, an Israeli settlement watchdog, said in a statement that such construction "distances (Israel) from the only way to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a two-state solution".

"Instead of working to solve the Israeli housing crisis, the government prioritises a radical minority living beyond the boundaries of the state", it said, according to the Reuters news agency. "It's not easy. America stands ready to assist in every way we can". To build on that trip, Kushner and Greenblatt will return to Jerusalem and Ramallah for meetings to discuss priorities and potential next steps with Netanyahu and his senior advisers as well as Abbas and his senior advisers, the official said.

According to the White House, Trump has kept the USA embassy in Jerusalem open in a bid to advance the prospects of a peace agreement.

Jared Kushner is traveling to the Middle East this week to work toward a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians. "Territories to continue the discussion about the possibility of peace", Greenblatt tweeted Sunday night. Jason Greenblatt, Trump's global envoy, will arrive on Monday.

The White House official said Kushner's visit is likely to be one of many trips before significant progress is made toward a peace deal.

"Hashem will give strength unto His people; Hashem will bless his people with peace".
