In meetings with top Israeli officials, Sullivan reiterates US opposition to major Rafah offensive

Jacob Magid is The Times of Israel's US bureau chief

The White House issues a readout on the meetings US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan held earlier today with Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, war cabinet ministers Benny Gantz and Gadi Eisenkot, IDF Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi, and Opposition Leader Yair Lapid.

The readout is a regurgitation of the same talking points that were used in the statement the White House issued yesterday, after Sullivan’s meetings with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other top Israeli officials.

Both readouts stress US support for Israel, its opposition to a major Rafah offensive, the need to secure a hostage-truce deal, and to improve the humanitarian situation in Gaza.
