Jared Kushner, President Trump’s special Middle East Advisor, arrived in Israel Wednesday, his visit to center on a new peace initiative of the Trump Administration.

Kushner joined Trump’s Middle East special envoy Jason Greenblatt who arrived in Israel earlier, the two tasked with paving way for renewing peace negotiations and talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

Both will meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu, as well as Israeli and Palestinian officials, meetings schedule in Jerusalem and Ramallah.

On his first official matter of business, Kushner traveled directly to meet with the family of Hadas Malka,23, a Border Police officer who was murdered in a Palestinian terror attack in Jerusalem last week.

Three terrorists armed with guns and knives carried out the twin attack in Jerusalem on Friday, the terrorists stabbing das Malka who succumbed to her wounds a few hours later. Five others were injured in the attack.

The terrorists were shot and killed by Israeli security forces.

The BBC then reported the attack with the title “Three Palestinians killed after deadly stabbing in Jerusalem,” with no mention of Malka. After numerous criticism of the report, the BBC later apologized stating “We accept that the original title did not adequately reflect the events and was later changed. Although there was no intention of misleading the readers, we apologize for the damage caused.”
