President Barack Obama will stop in the West Bank and Jordan on his trip to the Middle East in the coming months on a trip which will also include his first visit as US leader to Israel, the White House said Tuesday.

Officials had earlier disclosed Obama would visit Israel this Spring and the White House later confirmed that the trip would also involve travel to Jordan and the Palestinian territories.
