Vice President Kamala Harris met with Benny Gantz, a member of Israel’s War Cabinet, who visited Washington despite objections from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The Biden administration aims to increase humanitarian aid to Gaza, and Gantz’s meeting with Harris underscores a shift in dynamics within the U.S.-Israel relationship.

The meeting focused on completing a hostage deal to free over 100 captives held in Gaza since Hamas’ attack on Israel. Harris reiterated support for a temporary cease-fire to facilitate aid delivery and hostage release.

Although Gantz shares some hard-line views with Netanyahu, he has shown willingness to compromise on critical issues. The meeting comes as the U.S. initiated humanitarian aid airdrops into Gaza, bypassing its ally Israel.

Gantz’s visit highlights divisions within Israel’s wartime leadership, with Netanyahu reportedly disapproving of the trip. However, the White House sees the meeting as an opportunity to engage with all members of Israel’s leadership.

Biden, currently at Camp David, faces political pressure over the handling of the Israel-Hamas conflict. Harris has called for a temporary cease-fire, urging Israel not to hinder aid efforts. Despite criticism, Biden emphasizes the importance of Palestinian statehood for lasting peace.

Gantz’s visit aims to strengthen ties with the U.S., garner support for Israel’s war efforts, and secure the release of hostages. However, his departure from the government could signal a shift in Israeli politics and increase pressure on Netanyahu’s leadership.

While the meeting may not align entirely with Netanyahu’s positions, the Biden administration continues to advocate for peace efforts and humanitarian assistance in Gaza.
