The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star recently apologised for a series of tweets in which she first wished Israelis well and then added similar messages to Palestinians as tensions rose in the region.
Kardashian responded to those critical of her original comments: "I should have pointed out my intentions behind these tweets when I posted them. The fact is that regardless of religion and political beliefs, there are countless innocent people involved who didn't choose this, and I pray for all of them and also for a resolution."
She is now scheduled to tour Millions of Milkshakes locations in Kuwait and Bahrain, with an insider saying she wants to use the trip to learn about the region in meetings with local leaders.
"Kim wants to be as informed as possible… so she can use her celebrity to help those in need and raise awareness about important issues in the area," the source told TMZ.
Kardashian has not issued any comment on her upcoming Middle East trip.
