On Friday, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken called for a humanitarian pause in the fighting in Gaza in an attempt to facilitate the release of hostages held by Hamas. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu rejected the Secretary’s attempt at diplomacy and said he could not agree to a ceasefire without the release of hostages by the terrorist organization. Retired 4-star General, Chairman of the Institute for the Study of War, and FOX News Senior Strategic Analyst, General Jack Keane explains how the administration’s push for a pause only further complicates the war. Later, he reacts to the proxy attacks on U.S. facilities and troops within the region and discusses what to expect in terms of a widening conflict.
