Hamas Rejects Biden's Gaza Ceasefire Proposal as 'Just Words'

Hamas called US President Joe Biden's Gaza ceasefire proposal 'just words,' citing no written commitments from the US. Biden's plan includes ending the conflict and rebuilding Gaza without Hamas, but Hamas officials say it's not backed by concrete actions. The war in Gaza, triggered by a Hamas attack on October 7, has led to numerous deaths and ongoing negotiations with limited success.
The conflict in Gaza, initiated by a Hamas attack on October 7, has prompted global attempts for a ceasefire.

On Thursday, a senior Hamas official labeled US President Joe Biden's proposed Gaza ceasefire plan as 'just words,' citing no written commitments from the US.

Biden's plan purportedly aims to end the conflict, release hostages, and rebuild Gaza without Hamas in power.

However, Osama Hamdan, a Lebanon-based Hamas official, stated that the plan lacks any documented or written assurances.

He also accused Biden of masking Israel's rejection of a previous deal approved by Hamas.

Despite Biden's proposal, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared the plan as 'partial'.

Continuous negotiations by the US, Qatar, and Egypt have seen limited success, with only a seven-day ceasefire in November leading to the release of over 100 hostages.

The ongoing conflict, sparked by Hamas's October 7 attack, has resulted in significant casualties on both sides.

According to an AFP tally, 1,194 people, mostly civilians, died in the initial attack, and Israel's subsequent military actions have killed at least 36,654 people in Gaza.
