Mideast Peace Talks To Start In Washington

Mideast Peace talks are set to take place in Washington this week. The Israeli Prime Minister and the Palestinian President will both be meeting with President Barack Obama separately today, before formal talks begin tomorrow. The goal is for an agreement within one year a two-state solution, a sovereign Palestine and a secure Israel.

This comes amid a shooting attack of four Israeli citizens in the West Bank by Hamas militants.

Wednesday morning, Hamas said that 150 of it's members have been arrested this in raids. It is still unclear what the arrests are for, but Hamas says they are connected to the shootings.
