Global News published this video item, entitled “Israel-Gaza ceasefire: US secretary of state heads to the Middle East to strengthen truce” – below is their description.

WARNING: This story contains images some viewers may find disturbing. Discretion is advised.

After 11 days of fighting that killed about 250 Palestinians and about a dozen Israelis, the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas appears to be holding. Now, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is en route to Israel, to try negotiating a more lasting peace deal between the two sides.

But a recent stabbing in the East Jerusalem neighbourhood that became the flashpoint in this recent conflict shows how volatile the situation remains. And as Jennifer Johnson reports, tensions over the conflict are also escalating in the U.S., where anti-Semitic attacks are on the rise.
