A delegation led by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s chief of staff Yoav Horowitz departed Saturday night for Washington, to continue talks with the White House over Israeli construction in Judea and Samaria.

The delegation also includes Netanyahu’s foreign affairs adviser, Yonatan Shechter as well as legal advisers from the Prime Minister’s Office.

Talks with the Trump administration will focus on Israeli policy in Judea and Samaria, including the Prime Minister’s promise to Amona evictees to build a replacement community for them in Samaria.

Members of the Israeli delegation are expected to meet with special White House envoy Jason Greenblatt and senior White House advisers.

Last week, Greenblatt visited Israel for a fact-finding mission, meeting twice with Prime Minister Netanyahu, once with President Reuven Rivlin, and once with Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas. He also met with two leaders of the Judea/Samaria communities, Oded Revivi and Yossi Dagan.
