Speaking at a press conference in Tel Aviv, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says he is in Israel “first and foremost to consult directly with our partners on the joint efforts to bring all of the remaining hostages home.”

Turning to the Hamas counterproposal on a deal and Israel’s response, Blinken says that “while there are some clear non-starters in Hamas’s response, we do think it creates space for agreement to be reached. And we will work at that relentlessly until we get there.”
