US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is slated to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at 6 p.m. this evening in Jerusalem, an Israeli official tells The Times of Israel.

He will also meet separately with Defense Minister Yoav Gallant this evening, likely in Tel Aviv.

Tomorrow, Blinken will meet in Tel Aviv with President Isaac Herzog and Opposition Leader Yair Lapid, as well as with National Unity party leader Benny Gantz, who left the coalition yesterday. As he always does during his wartime visits, Blinken will meet with families of American hostages held in Gaza.

Blinken is currently in Egypt for a meeting with President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.
