An Israeli official tells The Times of Israel that President Isaac Herzog’s private conversation with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken focused on the region, including a briefing from Blinken on his conversations with Turkish and Arab leaders in recent days.

They also discussed this week’s hearing at the International Court of Justice in The Hague on South Africa’s genocide allegations against Israel in its war against Hamas.

The two also discussed hostages, and held a “tangible” discussion on the question of what Gaza will look like after Hamas has been toppled, says the official.
