France’s President Emmanuel Macron will visit Israel in the coming days, Hebrew-language media reports.

The French Embassy does not confirm the visit, but says Macron wants to visit Israel as soon as there is a “useful agenda and concrete actions to promote.”

Visiting Albania, Macron says intense talks are ongoing to free hostages held by Hamas after its devastating attack on Israel.

“I want to be very cautious here… so as not to endanger the intense talks we are currently conducting,” Macron says. “But they are progressing and we are following these talks hour by hour.”

Macron’s comments came after the mother of a French-Israeli captive who was seen in a Hamas hostage video, begged world leaders to intervene.
