The White House will hold a conference on the humanitarian situation in Gaza on Tuesday, but it is unclear whether any Palestinian officials will attend.
President Donald Trump’s “administration believes that deteriorating humanitarian conditions in Gaza require immediate attention,” US special envoy Jason Greenblatt said in a statement announcing the conference.
The meeting is expected to include top White House aide Jared Kushner, National Security Council staff and “many of the relevant parties,” according to Greenblatt.
It is unclear whether Palestinians officials will break their de facto boycott of US officials to attend.
The Palestinians were enraged by President Donald Trump’s decision to break with long-standing US policy by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
