Vice President Kamala Harris is set to meet with Benny Gantz, a member of the Israeli war cabinet, in Washington on Monday. They will discuss securing a hostage deal and increasing aid to Gaza. The meeting comes as the Biden administration faces pressure to address the humanitarian crisis and assist in securing a temporary cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas conflict. Negotiations are ongoing, and a proposal could lead to a six-week pause in fighting. The United States conducted its first food airdrop into Gaza on Saturday. Harris will emphasize the need to reduce civilian casualties and express concern for displaced Palestinians.
