The US Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated that Tel Aviv's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed his commitment to the proposal presented by US President Joe Biden.

After meeting Netanyahu in Tel Aviv on Tuesday, Blinken mentioned that discussions on post-war plans for Gaza would continue later in the day and over the next couple of days.

Blinken highlighted that Hamas’s statement supporting the UN resolution was a hopeful sign, noting that the longer the war continues, the higher the chances of escalating the conflict.

He emphasized that the forthcoming statements from Hamas leadership within Gaza are crucial and eagerly awaited.

Blinken also stressed that Biden's proposal for Gaza was the best option and had Tel Aviv’s acceptance.
