Foreign Minister Eli Cohen is heading to New York tonight to speak at the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday on the Hamas attacks and Israel’s war against the terrorist organization.

The Foreign Ministry tells The Times of Israel that he will bring families of Israelis kidnapped by Hamas, and will participate in events with them in New York.

He is also expected to meet UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, as well as other foreign ministers who will be attending, but that is yet to be finalized.
