Israel has had a busy summer, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visiting the United States for his first trip abroad as president and a summit with European leaders on the continent.
But now, a visit to Jerusalem has been delayed by a week.
The U.S. president will be in Israel for an international summit, but he will be staying for two days, instead of the planned two-day visit.
The United States has been closely following the situation in Israel, with President Trump on Monday visiting the occupied West Bank city of Bethlehem.
Trump said he was there to “reaffirm our longstanding commitment to Israel’s security and to reaffirm our strong ties to our Arab friends and allies.”
Trump also announced a new U.N. Security Council resolution that would allow the U.K. and the EU to extend their existing sanctions on Iran, but also to move the deadline to December.
That resolution, which passed in December, would block any action by the United Nations Security Council against Iran.
U.S.-backed Israeli military operation to dislodge the Islamic State from the Syrian border has also been called off.
Trump said in a statement Monday that the U:ll be doing all we can to ensure the safety of innocent civilians and that there are no civilians in harm’s way.
Trump will travel to Israel on Tuesday for an annual military exercise, which was expected to be a chance for the prime minister to discuss the U.-S.
Trump is scheduled to visit Israel on Wednesday.
The prime minister has scheduled a meeting with Israeli President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Netanyahu on Wednesday evening.
Trump will then visit the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula and Jordan on Thursday.
Trump and Netanyahu will also hold talks on Friday, a day that is expected to focus on peace and a ceasefire between the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Netanyahu will meet with Trump and other world leaders in a meeting that is being billed as a chance to reaffire the U-S.
commitment to peace.
The president’s trip to Israel has been criticized by Israel’s opposition leaders, with some arguing that the trip could damage ties between Washington and Tel Aviv.
Israeli Prime Minister and opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu has criticized U. S. President Donald Trump over his trip to the Jewish state.
Trump has not been invited to Israel and Netanyahu has said that the two leaders will discuss the recent wave of Palestinian violence and the future of the Israeli occupation.
Trump’s trip will also be seen as a way to test the strength of the U and Israel’s military, which is already reeling from years of fighting in Gaza.
U.A.E. forces have been carrying out airstrikes in Gaza for the past few months, but it has been unclear how much damage they have done.
