A Palestinian donor conference slated for next week in New York was postponed until after the U.S. elections. Following the postponement, American official William Burns, who is visiting the Middle East, cancelled a planned visit to the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The donor conference was delayed at the request of the Palestinian Authority, which hopes to avoid infighting between West Bank and Gaza leaders, Ha’aretz reported.
