A senior delegation of Biden administration officials will arrive in Israel later today for meetings with Israeli counterparts to discuss planning for post-war Gaza, the White House says.

The delegation will be led by US Vice Presiden Kamala Harris’s national security adviser Phil Gordon, who was with her for meetings with Arab leaders on the subject in Dubai over the weekend. He will be joined by Ilan Goldenberg, Harris’s Mideast adviser along with several others.

The US delegation will meet with National Security Council chair Tzachi Hanegbi and Strategic Affairs Minister Ron Dermer along with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in West Bank, according to the Walla news site.
