US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Tuesday Israel and the Palestinians faced an uphill struggle to restore trust, after a war with Gaza and unrest in the West Bank.

“There’s lots of hard work ahead to restore hope, respect and some trust across the communities,” he said following a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem.

“But we’ve seen the alternative and I think that should cause all of us to redouble our efforts to preserve the peace and improve the lives of Israelis and Palestinians alike.”
