ATLANTA (AP) - Former President Jimmy Carter will visit Syria, Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza this week to promote constructive dialogue on the Israeli-Arab conflict.

Carter is in the region already as a representative of the nonprofit Carter Center, which works to advance peace and health worldwide. The center is observing the Lebanese elections.

Spokeswoman Deanna Congileo says further details of the itinerary will be available later this week.

The Carter Center is among a host of international and local missions monitoring the election pitting Western-backed anti-Syrian groups that hold the parliamentary majority against a Hezbollah-led coalition supported by Syria and Iran.
