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

Israeli Prime Minister Cancels Official Delegation to Washington Following UN Ceasefire Resolution for Gaza

In a surprising turn of events, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced the cancellation of an official delegation to Washington following the United Nations Security Council’s approval of a resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza. Netanyahu cited Hamas’ ongoing refusal to listen to international pressure as the reason behind his decision.

The US had abstained from voting on the resolution, which marked the first time such a text had gained support in the conflict after previous US vetoes. 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 withdrawal of Israel’s delegation from Washington. The situation remains tense, with Hamas continuing its demands for an end to Israel’s offensive and the withdrawal of its troops from Gaza.

The conflict has caused significant loss of life and ongoing negotiations for peace. The Israeli government had been planning to discuss a possible military offensive in Rafah during the delegation’s visit, but Netanyahu ultimately decided against it following President Biden’s suggestion to consider targeting Hamas without a major ground offensive.
