Kerry to travel to Middle East

Washington, Oct 14 (IANS) US Secretary of State John Kerry has said he will travel to Israel and Palestine in an effort to calm down violence in the region.

Kerry on Tuesday said he would go to the region “at some point appropriately” without announcing a date, Xinhua news agency reported.

“What’s happening is that, unless we get going, a two-state solution could conceivably be stolen from everybody,” he said.

Three Israelis were killed and at least 15 others were injured in a series of attacks in Jerusalem and central Israel on Tuesday, in the gravest outbreak of Palestinian violence since the current round of unrest started.

The recent violence broke out last month with clashes at East Jerusalem’s flashpoint al-Aqsa mosque compound and quickly spread throughout the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
