Hamas accepts the ceasefire resolution voted yesterday by the United Nations Security Council and is ready to negotiate the details: Sami Abu Zuhri, a senior Hamas official, told Reuters, adding that it is up to Washington to ensure that Israel respects it. “The US administration is facing a real test to follow through on its commitments to compel the occupation to immediately end the war in implementation of the UN Security Council resolution,” Zuhri added.

Blinken, Netanyahu reaffirmed ceasefire commitment

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “reaffirmed his commitment” to the ceasefire in Gaza: this was announced by the American Secretary of State, Antony Blinken. “Last night I met Netanyahu, who reaffirmed his commitment to the proposal ceasefire agreement,” Blinken said, referring to the plan presented by the United States to the United Nations. The head of US diplomacy also called the reaction of Hamas, which said it welcomed the UN Security Council resolution approved on Tuesday calling for a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, an “encouraging sign”.
