German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier will travel to the Middle East on Monday and meet Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, to discuss the ongoing hostilities between Hamas and Israel, German media reported on Sunday.

Germany mediated a prisoner swap in 2011 in which the Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit held by Hamas was freed in exchange for more than 1,000 Palestinians jailed by Israel.
