Republican John Boehner, the speaker of the US Congress and an ardent backer of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, will visit Israel at the end of this month, diplomatic sources said on Friday.

The visit will follow Netanyahu's surprise election victory this week and his speech to Congress earlier this month on Boehner's invitation, an event that aggravated the White House and drew sharp criticism.

The date of his visit with a Congressional delegation has not been fixed but it will happen before the end of March, diplomats said.

Officials in the prime minister's office and at the US embassy in Israel had no immediate comment.
