Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

QUESTION: And Israel's violations of human rights—
BLINKEN: Oh, I'm sorry. So, on that, I think you're referring to the so-called Leahy Law and our work under that.  So, this is a very important law, and it's one that we apply across the board.  And when we're doing these investigations, these inquiries, it's something that takes time, that has to be done very carefully both in collecting the facts and analyzing them—and that's exactly what we've done. And I think it's fair to say that you'll see results very soon. I've made determinations; you can expect to see them in the days ahead.

"Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich said, 'The decision to enact sanctions against the IDF while Israel is fighting for its exitance is crazy. We warned that the Biden administration's sanctions against settlers will carry on to the IDF and the rest of the State of Israel. It's part of a planned move to force Israel to agree to the establishment of a Palestinian state and to harm Israel's security.'"
