Secretary Blinken’s Meeting with Chairman of the National Unity Party Gantz

Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken met today with Chairman of the National Unity Party Benny Gantz in Israel.  They discussed the proposal to achieve a ceasefire in Gaza as part of a hostage deal that would secure the release of all hostages and surge humanitarian assistance throughout Gaza.  The Secretary commended Israel for the proposal and emphasized Hamas should take the deal without delay.  He reiterated, in addition to reuniting hostages with their loved ones, the proposal would advance Israel’s long-term security interests, including by unlocking the possibility of restoring calm along Israel’s border with Lebanon that would allow Israelis to return to their homes.
