The diplomatic effort to achieve a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip will reach a peak Tuesday evening, when U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lands in Israel for a surprise visit. Clinton will arrive in Israel directly from Cambodia, after accompanying U.S. President Barack Obama on his visit to Southeast Asia.

Clinton will arrive in Israel late Tuesday night and hold a series of meetings on Wednesday: she will meet in Jerusalem with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Shimon Peres, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and Defense Minister Ehud Barak. The U.S. secretary of state will also go to Ramallah, where she will meet with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) and with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.

Together with Obama, Clinton has conducted intensive telephone diplomacy over the past two days with the foreign ministers of Israel, Egypt, Turkey, Qatar, France and other countries. Clinton and National Security Adviser Thomas Donilon have been in regular contact with U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro and U.S. Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson, and even conducted video conference calls with them from Air Force 1.
