President Donald Trump was briefed on the plan in which Kushner and a small "peace team" have been working silently for months. The text itself remains a closely guarded secret – even within the White House – and has so far only been seen by four people in the administration in its entirety, the sources said.
The text was not even shared with allies, including the Israeli government, US officials said.
Those familiar with the plan said they were pursuing a non-traditional approach to tackling the seemingly stubborn Israeli-Palestinian conflict by building a robust package for the economic development of the Palestinian people and trying to find political elements of the Palestinian people To tackle conflict.
The White House declined to comment when details of this plan were asked.
Kushner and his team traveled to several Arab countries in February to brief diplomats on the economic aspects of the peace plan. One official said that some of the plan's general economic concepts were generally well received on this trip.
Although the plan could be released this month, the release date has not been finalized, and the administration weighs several factors. Possible causes of delays could be the upcoming holidays of Passover and Ramadan.
At the beginning of his presidency, Trump commissioned his son-in-law to work on the Israeli-Palestinian issue as one of his high-level responsibilities in the White House. In his hopes of achieving peace, Trump described a perspective as "the ultimate business."
Trump was optimistic about the prospects for the peace plan on Wednesday after Netanyahu was re-elected.
"The fact that Bibi won, we will see pretty well in terms of peace," said Trump in the White House, when asked by a reporter if Netanyahu's victory meant he had the government's peace plan would release soon.
Two weeks ago, President Netanyahu received in the White House to support his friend's support in the last leg of a tough re-election bid.
"Everyone said that you can not have peace in the Middle East with Israel and the Palestinians," Trump said Wednesday. "I think we have a chance and I think we have a better chance now if Bibi has won."
Netanyahu said he welcomes an opportunity to review the plan.
"I look forward to receiving the plan and we will examine it as soon as it is presented," Netanyahu said in February during a meeting attended by vice-presidents Mike Pence and Kushner in Poland. "I have to say that I know that the Trump government is anxious to ensure the security of Israel for generations."
