The Trump administration is swinging for a "home run" in the proposal it's crafting for peace between Israelis and Palestinians, but it isn't going to offer "goodies" to get the Palestinians to start negotiations, a key White House adviser told Ari Shapiro on NPR's All Things Considered.

Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt is an assistant to President Trump and has traveled to the Mideast repeatedly over the past two years as part of the peace plan effort by Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

President Trump says he will announce Tuesday whether he is going to keep the U.S. in the Iran nuclear deal. This comes after Trump has allowed the deal to stay in place through the first 15 months of his presidency while frequently criticizing it and threatening to pull the U.S. out of it.

At least 16 Palestinians have been killed and more than 1,000 injured in clashes Friday with Israeli troops along the Gaza border, according to the United Nations.

The victims range in age from 16 to 42 years old, according to Palestinian health officials. Palestinian health officials tell NPR that hundreds of Palestinians suffered from a range of injuries. The Associated Press reports the injuries were from live fire, rubber bullets or tear gas.
