International efforts for a Gaza-Israel cease-fire are forging ahead, as in the past 24 hours, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has spoken with the foreign ministers of Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

Biden expressed his support for a ceasefire on Monday night, in conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and Blinken has called for “sustained calm” between Israel and Hamas, while Israel says 3,200 rockets have fallen on it in eight days.
