Must read

The United States Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, landed in Tel Aviv on Monday ahead of talks urging a de-escalation in violence that has flared in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Washington’s top diplomat arrived in Israel on the second leg of his Middle East tour, after meeting Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and the country’s foreign minister in Cairo.
Israel is reeling from an attack Friday that killed seven civilians outside a synagogue in annexed east Jerusalem, a day after the deadliest army raid in years in the occupied West Bank claimed 10 Palestinian lives.

“We’ve seen horrific terrorist attacks in the last couple of days that we condemn and deplore,” Blinken earlier told Saudi TV channel Al Arabiya.

In a press conference in Cairo on Monday, Blinken urged “all parties to calm things down and deescalate tensions” while also stressing the “importance of working for a two-state solution”.

In the latest bloodshed, Israeli troops killed a Palestinian driver in the West Bank Monday, officials on both sides said, with the army saying the car had hit a soldier’s leg before speeding off.
