Senior White House adviser Dennis Ross arrived in Israel to discuss security arrangements under a possible peace deal with the Palestinians.

Ross and David Hale, deputy to Middle East envoy George Mitchell, arrived in Israel Thursday. They will meet with Israeli officials to discuss maintaining the country’s qualitative military edge in the region under any proposed peace deal, according to a statement issued by the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office.

Ross is making his third visit to Israel in a month. Mitchell was last in Israel in December.

The Palestinians have said they will not restart negotiations until Israel stops building in the settlements.
