The Globe reports that a Warren aide said the senator will join a congressional delegation to Israel, probably sometime after the midterm elections. 

The news comes after Clinton has sparked controversy from an interview in The Atlantic over the weekend, in which she appeared to criticize some aspects of President Obama's foreign policy.

The liberal group MoveOn.org criticized Clinton's comments, and many liberals are hoping Warren will challenge her.

Warren so far has focused on domestic issues, not foreign policy, which the Israel trip could be an effort to address. Warren continually says she is not running for president. 

The Globe notes that the comments Warren has made on foreign policy have stressed restraint and concern for civilian casualties.
