President Isaac Herzog will attend the COP28 climate conference in Dubai later this week in order to hold sideline meetings with world leaders aimed at advancing the release of the remaining hostages in Gaza, his office announces.

“The purpose of these meetings is to reveal to world leaders in a clear and profound manner the atrocities committed by the Hamas terror organization during the horrific massacre on October 7 and to emphasize the essential security threat that led to Israel’s forced entry into the war,” Herzog’s office says.

Herzog will also use the meetings to highlight the steps Israel is taking to mitigate the humanitarian crisis in Gaza as it readies to continue its war against Hamas once the ongoing truce concludes.
