Secretary of State Antony Blinken reaffirmed the US’ commitment to Israel’s security during a meeting Tuesday with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in which he also said the administration will work to develop “assistance and investment” for Palestinians.
It was the first meeting between the two since last week’s cease-fire brokered by Egypt that ended 11 days of fighting between Israel and Hamas militants.
“We know that to prevent a return to violence, we have to use the space created to address a larger set of underlying issues and challenges, and that begins with tackling the grave humanitarian situation in Gaza and starting to rebuild,” Blinken said during the meeting with Netanyahu in Jerusalem.
He pointed out that the US will work with international partners to ensure the aid doesn’t benefit Hamas militants.
A senior State Department official admitted Monday “there are no guarantees” that millions of dollars being sent by the United States to help Palestinians would not end up in the coffers of the Hamas terror group.
