America's Secretary of State i.e. Foreign Minister Antony Blinken visited Saudi Arabia. From here on Wednesday they are flying directly to Israel and Jordan. Antony Blinken's Middle East visit is taking place at a time when Hamas leaders have reached Egypt to respond to the Israel-Hamas ceasefire deal. On the other hand, there is tension between Israel and Iran also. After reaching Saudi, Antony Blinken said that he hoped that Hamas would agree to a ceasefire deal with Israel in exchange for the release of the hostages.

Antony Blinken has reached Saudi amid the ongoing war in Gaza and the growing threat of Iran in the region. Gaza ceasefire and providing humanitarian aid to Gaza are important issues in his visit. The announcement of Blinken's visit came after President Joe Biden and PM Benjamin discussed over the phone a ceasefire in Gaza and the release of hostages.

Israel and Jordan will go after Saudi

Announcing Blinken's visit, State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said that Blinken was traveling to the Middle East to discuss the ceasefire, but he also said, "It is Hamas that stands between the Palestinian people and a ceasefire." Let us tell you that after Saudi, Blinken goes to Israel and Jordan, the US President has already expressed concern over Israel's plan to launch attacks in Rafah.

At the same time, Jordan can also play an important role in this ceasefire deal. About 3 million Palestinian citizens live in Jordan and the wife of King Abdullah is also of Palestinian origin.

Efforts for a ceasefire intensified

Egypt, Qatar, and the US have been trying for months to broker a new ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, as the humanitarian crisis in Gaza grows by the day. A Hamas delegation reached Egypt on Monday to present its stand on the proposal presented by Israel for a ceasefire and the release of hostages.
