Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is visiting the Middle East for the fourth time on the Gaza issue. He held a meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Riyadh on Monday.
After the meeting, Blinken said, four Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, have agreed to work with Turkey to restore stability in Gaza. Earlier he visited 5 countries including Jordan and United Arab Emirates.
Meanwhile, Anthony Blinken arrived in Israel on Tuesday. He is scheduled to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other officials. The meeting will discuss the protection of civilians in Gaza and increasing relief supplies. Blinken is also scheduled to visit the West Bank and Egypt later.
An Israeli delegation has arrived in Egypt to resume talks on the release of hostages held by Hamas. Cairo suspended talks last week after a drone strike killed a Hamas deputy chief in Tel Aviv. Hamas still holds 128 Israeli hostages.
The United Nations has expressed concern that the violence in Gaza continues to escalate into a regional conflict.
Florencia Soto Nino, assistant spokeswoman for the UN secretary-general, said the violence was increasing every day. New places are being attacked. And it also increases the fear of conflict spreading to other regions of the Middle East. I call upon the concerned parties to take the necessary steps to return the situation to normality and stability in Gaza.
Gaza’s Ministry of Health said hunger, water shortages and disease are intensifying in Gaza. In this situation, the intervention of the United Nations has been called to solve these crises.
