Amos Hochstein, President Joe Biden's energy security adviser, visited Israel to prevent a potential war between Hezbollah and the IDF. Hochstein arrived during the Gaza war and is expected to brief Israelis on his efforts to contain the violence. The US has also increased its force posture in the region to deter further conflict. Meanwhile, the Houthis in Yemen seized a ship believed to be linked to Israel, prompting condemnation from the US and demands for its immediate release. The Houthis have been launching missile and drone attacks at Israel in solidarity with Hamas in Gaza.
