Hamas has accepted the proposal for a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip presented by United States President Joe Biden, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said on Monday (3).

On the other side of the negotiating table, the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu backed down, saying there were “gaps” and that the agreement lacked precision.

“The proposal presented by Biden is incomplete,” said the leader of the far-right coalition, in a closed-door meeting of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee of the Knesset, Israel’s parliament.

“The war will stop to bring the hostages back and then we will hold discussions. There are other details that the US president has not presented to the public,” Netanyahu said.

According to Israel’s Channel 12, Netanyahu says he can stop the war for six weeks, but he will not end it. “Iran and all our enemies are watching to see if we capitulate,” says Netanyahu.

The Israeli retreat comes after the far-right coalition that supports Netanyahu as prime minister threatened to leave the government if Israel accepts the ceasefire agreement.

This Sunday (2), the Zionist hordes went into an uproar after Netanyahu’s main foreign policy advisor, Ophir Falk, gave an interview to the British newspaper Sunday Times announcing that Tel Aviv agreed to a ceasefire.

“A deal that we agree to – it’s not a good deal, but we passionately want the hostages to be released, all of them.” “There are many details to be resolved,” he said, adding that Israeli conditions, including “the release of the hostages and the destruction of Hamas as a genocidal terrorist organization,” have not changed.

Amid the impasses, Israel continues to attack the Gaza Strip, while intensifying aerial bombardments in Syria and Lebanon.

This Sunday, a Brazilian woman and two children were taken to a hospital in Tire, in southern Lebanon, after the Israeli army launched an attack on the city of Saddikine. Fatima Boustami is in serious condition, according to reports from relatives and family, and is awaiting medical clearance to be transferred to Beirut, where she will have better medical care. Itamaraty issued a statement expressing indignation and is working to remove the family from the conflict.

In Gaza, new aerial bombings by Israel in the south and center of the Arab enclave left at least 20 Palestinians dead this Monday (3).

Israeli revenge after the Hamas attack on October 7 has already claimed more than 35,000 lives in the Gaza Strip and a trail of destruction that amplifies the humanitarian crisis there.
