US officials have warned that the conflict between Israel and the armed group Hamas could escalate as US warships head to the region amid increasing clashes on Israel’s northern border with Lebanon.

Markets are pricing in a roughly 90% probability that the Federal Reserve will leave interest rates unchanged at its policy meeting next month, according to the CME FedWatch tool.
