Opposition Leader Yair Lapid meets with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken to discuss a potential hostage deal, according to a tweet by the former prime minister.

He says he told Blinken that “Netanyahu doesn’t have any political excuse not to move to a deal for the release of the hostages. He has a majority in the nation, he has a majority in the Knesset, and if needed, I’ll make sure he has a majority in the government.”
