US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is planning to visit Israel early next week for talks with senior Israeli and Palestinian officials about the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza, according to the Walla news site.

Citing two sources familiar with the matter, the report says Blinken is expected to arrive during a several day ceasefire slated to take effect this week as part of a deal that will see Hamas release some 50 children, mothers and other women seized in the terror group’s October 7 onslaught.
