Israel-Palestine Clash: Hamas said – Ceasefire can be announced with Israel in next 24 hours- The ongoing fierce conflict between Israel and Palestine militant group Hamas has intensified soon to end. Hamas leaders have said that a ceasefire can be announced in the next 24 hours. In this most fierce conflict since 2014, at least 227 people have died in the Gaza Strip and 12 in Israel. While Hamas has fired about 4,000 rockets on Israel, the Israeli army has also carried out hundreds of air and ground attacks. Hamas leaders said in a conversation with American TV channel CNN that a ceasefire may be announced between Israel and Hamas in the next 24 hours. However, so far there has been no statement from Israel on this. A day earlier, Hamas political bureau leader Moose Abu Marjok had said that he expected a ceasefire to be announced in the next day or two.

Meanwhile, the US said on Wednesday that it opposes the United Nations proposal to have a ceasefire. The US also said that this crisis can be eradicated by the efforts of the Biden administration. The US blocked the proposal brought to the United Nations 4 times to stop the violence between Israel and Palestine. After this, France has prepared the proposal. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday pledged to continue a military operation on the Gaza Strip, despite US President Joe Biden’s plea to bring a “significant reduction in tension” in the wake of the fierce 11-day fighting between Israel and Palestine. It is believed that this statement of Netanyahu can complicate international efforts to reach a ceasefire.

What did Israeli PM Netanyahu say?

Israel continued airstrikes on Gaza on Wednesday, while Palestinian militants also fired rockets at Israel throughout the day. Meanwhile, rockets were fired from Lebanon into northern Israel. Netanyahu said after the visit to the military headquarters that he ‘greatly appreciates the cooperation of the US President’, but added that the country will continue the campaign ‘to bring peace and security back to the people of Israel.’ He said that he was committed to continuing the campaign till its objective was fulfilled.

White House statement

Shortly before Netanyahu’s statement, Biden appealed to the Israeli PM to bring a ‘significant reduction in tension’. According to a statement issued by the White House about the talks between the two leaders, this is the most severe public pressure ever put on Biden’s behalf by a US colleague. It said that in a telephonic conversation the US President asked Netanyahu to move towards the ‘ceasefire path’. Biden is also under increasing pressure to make more efforts as the death toll in the conflict has crossed 200.
