Israel and US to hold virtual meeting on Rafah plans Monday — report

The United States and Israel are expected to hold a virtual meeting on Monday to discuss the Biden administration’s alternative proposals to an Israeli military invasion of Rafah, Axios reports, citing three Israeli and US officials.

The report cites an Israeli official saying that an in-person meeting on the matter will take place next week.

According to Axios, the virtual meeting is a way for Netanyahu to “save face” after Strategic Affairs Minister Ron Dermer, who will take part in the talks, repeatedly warned the premier that failing to how the meeting would further strain ties with US President Joe Biden.

National Security Adviser Tzachi Hanegbi will also take part in the virtual meeting, Axios reports.
