During their meeting earlier today with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, several relatives of the hostages in Gaza lamented what they described as a “terrible campaign” being advanced against them in Israel.
“The feeling is that those who are supposed to be overseeing the return of the hostages are not really interested in doing so,” one of the representatives told Blinken, according to Channel 12.
“We feel dreadful. We feel that there’s a campaign designed to torpedo the deal and to create public opinion against it. We are told to use pressure abroad, but at home, where we ought to be embraced, there’s an effort to change the public perception at our expense,” the representative is quoted as having said.
They went on to show Blinken online materials showcasing how the campaign against them is being waged.
