Netanyahu: Cancelled Trip to US Sends Message to Hamas

Israel Cancels Official Delegation Trip to Washington Over Gaza Ceasefire Demands

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel made an announcement that his government would cancel a trip by an official delegation to Washington, D.C., in response to a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza. Netanyahu stated that this decision was intended as a message to Hamas, urging them not to rely on pressure tactics. He emphasized that the resolution and Washington’s abstention from the vote had emboldened Hamas to take a tough stance against Israel.

The delegation had been scheduled to discuss with President Joe Biden the possibility of launching a military offensive against the city of Rafah in southern Gaza. Biden had requested Netanyahu consider this option after the UN Security Council passed its first resolution since the conflict began in support of a ceasefire agreement. Despite the cancellation of the trip, talks between Israel and Hamas are ongoing in Doha.

Netanyahu criticized Hamas for not being interested in negotiating for a ceasefire agreement, citing their extreme demands. The conflict between Israel and Hamas has resulted in many casualties on both sides.
