Report: Blinken expected in Israel on Tuesday to discuss Rafah operation, hostage deal

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is expected to arrive in Israel on Tuesday, according to an unsourced Hebrew media report.

This would be Blinken’s seventh trip to the region since war erupted in Gaza after Hamas’s October 7 massacre in southern Israel.

The Kan broadcaster reports that Blinken is coming to Israel to discuss the looming IDF operation in Rafah, along with efforts to secure a deal to pause the fighting and free over 100 hostages held by terror groups in Gaza since October 7.
