Antony Blinken will meet with Israeli politician who split with Netanyahu

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is expected to meet with Israel’s Benny Gantz on Tuesday, according to a senior State Department official.

Gantz, a former Israeli defense minister and senior member of the war cabinet, resigned from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government over the weekend after reaching a self-imposed deadline to leave if Netanyahu did not come up with a new plan for the war in Gaza. .

Before, on Monday night (10), Blinken will meet with Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant according to the authority.

Blinken is on a visit to several Middle Eastern countries, including stops in Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Qatar, as part of US efforts to push for a ceasefire agreement.

Gantz is seen as Netanyahu’s main political rival. His departure could further isolate Israel in the international community.
