US Secretary of State John Kerry landed in Israel on Thursday night, after his visit was postponed due to the snowstorm which hit Jerusalem.

Kerry, who was in the area just last week, is scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah in his relentless attempt to push the peace process forward.

The talks are once again expected to focus on US security ideas – drawn up by retired US Marine Corps Gen. John Allen – that were presented to Netanyahu in Kerry's previous visit, and which deal in detail with the types of security arrangements that will be put in place following an agreement. Israel has said it will accept only an arrangement that allows for an Israel security presence along the Jordan River, something the Palestinians have rejected.
