U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said here on Wednesday that she may visit Israel and the Palestinian territories in early March to help the two sides narrow their differences in peace talks.

Rice told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbaswere trying to continue peace talks "without much public glare" and the United States was doing everything it could to help.

"I will probably return to the region at the beginning of March, to see if we can help them," Rice said.

Israel and the Palestinians officially revived their peace talks in late November at a U.S. conference under Washington's stewardship after a seven-year freeze.

But the talks have repeatedly stalled over disagreements on the most divisive issues and escalating violence that has over the past week seen the first suicide bombing inside Israel in a year and at least 20 people, mostly militants, killed by Israel in Hamas-run Gaza.
