Secretary Blinken in Israel to Discuss Temporary Cease-Fire

He stated Hamas leaders have responded to a proposed hostage deal.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has gone to Israel to discuss the possibility of a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas to release hostages. On Tuesday, in Doha, Qatar, the secretary of state discussed a temporary cease-fire and more humanitarian aid for Palestinians with Qatari and Egyptian leaders.

Secretary Blinken said, “We will be working as hard as we possibly can to try to get an agreement so that we can move forward with not only a renewed but an expanded agreement on hostages and all the benefits that would bring with it.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for Secretary Blinken as he engages in talks regarding the temporary ceasefire-for-hostage deal with Israeli officials.
  • For the president and his foreign advisors as they seek to influence Middle Eastern heads of state.
  • For the peace of Jerusalem and for wisdom for the leaders and governing officials of Israel.
