The Arab League is a regional organization of countries in the Middle East and North Africa.
Formed in 1945, it currently has 22 member states, who work together to improve relations between Arab nations. Syria's membership was suspended in 2011 because of the country's civil war.
Tensions in the West Bank have flared enormously with deaths on both sides of the conflict. Israel has now appeared to offer some concessions over contentious security precautions that led to bloody violence.
Arab states have offered Israel a reconciliation deal provided it cedes land captured in 1967 to a future Palestinian state. US President Donald Trump had rattled leaders when he said he was open to a one-state solution.
