Blinken will visit Israel on June 10

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken will arrive in Israel on June 10. The "Ynet" platform informs about this. Blinken's visit will come amid efforts to promote a three-phase ceasefire deal in the enclave and the release of hostages held in the Gaza Strip.

On May 31, US President Joe Biden announced the terms of the new draft peace settlement agreement, which consists of three stages. The first is scheduled for six weeks and involves:

  • A complete ceasefire.

  • The withdrawal of Israeli troops from the inhabited areas of Gaza.

  • The release of hostages held by the Hamas movement in exchange for the release of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners from prisons.

In addition, during this period, the parties should start negotiations, and the ceasefire regime will operate until a mutual understanding is reached.
