Top US diplomat seeks to reboot Israel/Palestine peace process

Europe Editor and Presenter

In Gaza, a delicate ceasefire between Israel and Hamas has held for a fourth day.

Washington is hoping to reboot the redundant peace process by sending its top diplomat, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

He is due to visit Amman, Cairo, Ramallah and Jerusalem, but not Gaza, as Hamas does not recognise Israel and the US has put Hamas on the terrorist list.
