Secretary of State Hillary Clinton vowed to rekindle efforts to attain a “comprehensive peace” in the Middle East ahead of a meeting Tuesday evening with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Clinton arrived in Jerusalem late Tuesday to help broker a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas and avoid a ground invasion of the densely packed coastal strip. She is scheduled to meet with Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi on Wednesday.

In a statement delivered alongside Netanyahu, Clinton said President Obama had sent her to deliver the “very clear message” that “America’s commitment to Israel’s security is rock-solid and unwavering.”
