Governor Andrew Cuomo and state Legislature leaders plan to make a "unity trip" to Israel this week to show support for the country amid the fighting in Gaza.

The group, which includes State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and State Senate Majority Leaders Dean Skelos and Jeff Klein, will leave for Tel Aviv on a commercial airliner Tuesday night.

They will meet with Israeli government officials, as well as those affected by the conflict during the three day trip.

It's unclear if they will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The trip will not be paid for with taxpayer money.

The trip is meant to show solidarity with Israel.

Members of the governor's family and several other bold faced names such as Mort Zuckerman, the publisher of the Daily News, and fashion designer Kenneth Cole will also be a part of the delegation.
