US President Donald Trump's son-in-law and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner is visiting five Middle Eastern countries to raise funds for the "deal of the century", Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds reported yesterday.
Kushner, accompanied by US Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt and US envoy to Iran Brian Hook, is due to visit Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar.
Along with Greenblatt, he will pressure the Arab leaders in order to fund the economic portion of the long-awaited Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, while Brian would persuade them to fund a coalition against Iran.
Securing funds for the economic part of the deal, which includes programmes to be carried out in the besieged Gaza Strip, is a step towards unveiling the deal.
The newspaper said that the team would not reveal anything about the components of the plan to their counterparts in the countries they are visiting.
The US said that the plan would be revealed after the Israel elections slated for 9 April.
