UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is to visit Jerusalem and Ramallah this week for talks with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on the crisis in Gaza, Ban's spokesman Martin Nesirky said on Monday.

Ban arrived in Cairo on Monday to support Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi's efforts to mediate a truce to end cross-border fighting between Israel and Hamas, the Islamic militant group that controls Gaza, Nesirky said.

Ban meets Morsi on Tuesday but has no plans to visit Gaza, Nesirky said.
