On the diplomatic front, world leaders from the G7 nations are meeting in Italy, where the U.S. says it will push its allies to back its proposed Gaza ceasefire deal. Hamas has responded to the proposal, but on Wednesday U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said some of the group’s requested changes were “not workable.” Hamas responded in a statement, “While [Antony] Blinken continues to talk about ’Israel’s approval’ of the proposal, we have not heard any Israeli official voicing approval.”
