Netanyahu: Israeli delegation trip cancellation to US was a ‘message’ to Hamas

Israeli Prime Minister Cancels Washington Trip After Gaza Ceasefire Resolution: Netanyahu Urges Hamas to Back Off

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced the cancellation of a trip to Washington for an official delegation after the United Nations Security Council approved a resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza. Netanyahu stated that the decision was a message to Hamas, urging them not to trust international pressure to prevent Israel from taking action.

Netanyahu criticized the US abstention from the UN vote, calling it a mistake that encouraged Hamas to adopt a tough stance. The delegation was meant to discuss a possible military offensive in Rafah, but Netanyahu decided against it following Biden’s suggestion to consider targeting Hamas without a major ground offensive.

Israel has been critical of Washington’s decision, with Foreign Minister Israel Katz calling it a moral and ethical mistake. Talks for a ceasefire in Gaza are ongoing in Doha, despite the delegation’s withdrawal from Washington.

The conflict between Israel and Hamas has caused significant loss of life and ongoing negotiations for peace. The situation remains tense, with Hamas sticking to its demands for an end to the offensive and the withdrawal of Israeli troops from Gaza.
