U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is heading to the Middle East to foster negotiations to end the ongoing conflict between Israel and Gaza. Clinton was set to depart Tuesday from Cambodia, where she was on an official Southeast Asia visit with President Barack Obama, according to the State Department.

Clinton will meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem, as well as Palestinian officials in Ramallah. She will then head to Cairo to meet with Egyptian leaders. Her visit will support “de-escalation of violence and a durable outcome that ends the rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns and restores a broader calm,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said, according to the Washington Post.
