Israeli President Isaac Herzog and Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh are among hundreds of high-ranking officials due to attend the Munich Security Conference this week, its chair Christoph Heusgen said on Monday, APA reports citing Reuters.

The conference takes place as the war in the Gaza Strip between Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas, in which more than 28,000 Palestinians and about 1,430 Israelis have been killed, enters its fifth month with no end in sight.

Shtayyeh is part of the Palestinian Authority based in the West Bank. It was not known if he and Herzog would meet.

Heusgen said the Israel-Hamas war, Russia's invasion of Ukraine and conflicts in the Horn of Africa will dominate the conference, which takes place in the southern German city of Munich from this Friday through to Sunday and is attended by the world's defence and security elite.

The future of NATO and European defence will also be a big topic, Heusgen said.
