US calls for a ceasefire in Gaza as Israel experiences its highest troop casualty rate

US calls for a ceasefire in Gaza as Israel experiences its highest troop casualty rate.

The White House spokesperson noted that a fresh ceasefire might theoretically lead to a longer-term peace between Israel and Hamas, although he cautioned that talks were still in their early stages.

US calls for a ceasefire in Gaza as Israel experiences its highest troop casualty rate

Jerusalem, Gaza, and Washington: A month-long truce in Gaza is being negotiated, and intensive international mediation efforts are aimed at achieving the goal of swapping Israeli captives for Palestinian inmates. The White House announced on Tuesday that its ambassador was actively discussing the matter.

Since December 28, Qatar, the US, and Egypt have engaged in shuttle diplomacy, and according to sources, Israel and Hamas largely accept the framework proposal in principle. According to insiders, it is being delayed by disagreements between the two sides about how to finish the Gaza War once and for all. Requests for comment on the Reuters report were not immediately answered by the US State Department and White House, Egypt’s State Information Service, Qatar’s foreign ministry, or Qatar. “In the name of our heroes, for the sake of our lives, we will not stop fighting until absolute victory,” declared Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Speaking on behalf of the Israeli government, Eylon Levy stated that after the militant group’s cross-border assault on October 7 that claimed the lives of almost 1,200 Israelis, there would be no ceasefire that left Hamas in control and hostages in Gaza. At least 195 Palestinians have died in the last 24 hours, according to Palestinian health officials, bringing the total number of deaths from Israeli airstrikes and shelling to 25,490. There could be thousands more missing in the debris. According to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, “the entire population of Gaza is enduring destruction at a scale and speed without parallel in recent history,” he said to the Security Council.

The troops died on the same day as the Israeli military began its largest operation in over a month to capture the last sections of Khan Younis, surrounding the main southern metropolis of Gaza that is providing shelter to hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refugees.

Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, the military spokesman, stated on Tuesday night that over 100 militants have been killed by Israeli forces in western Khan Younis in the last 24 hours. Israel claims to have killed about nine thousand jihadists overall. The number cannot be verified by Reuters.


Subsequently, US Middle East envoy Brett McGurk was in Cairo and would visit the region for “active” talks on guaranteeing the release of captives and achieving a humanitarian pause, according to White House spokeswoman John Kirby.
Kirby informed reporters that “the conversations are very sober and serious about trying to get another hostage deal in place.” The breakdown of a seven-day truce in November was attributed by both sides to their refusal to accept an extension of the parameters for the daily release of terrorist hostages in return for Palestinian inmates. At the last minute, negotiators were unable to come up with a plan to free more captives, including men and Israeli soldiers, despite the release of women, children, and international prisoners.


The armed wing of Hamas claimed responsibility for Monday’s missile attack that claimed the lives of 21 Israeli troops. The militants’ missiles struck a structure where Israeli forces had placed explosives to destroy it, Israeli military spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari told reporters in Tel Aviv. That building and the one next to it collapsed as a result of the strike, he claimed.
An attack elsewhere claimed the lives of three soldiers. Since the ground offensive began in late October, 220 Israeli soldiers have lost their lives. Tuesday saw the road leading from Khan Younis toward the Mediterranean coast closed by advancing Israeli tanks. This prevented civilians from escaping to Rafah, the final town on Gaza’s southern border with Egypt, which is currently home to more than half of the enclave’s 2.3 million residents. Hospitals are under Israeli embargo, according to Palestinian officials, making it hard to rescue injured patients. Ahed Masmah brought in five corpses to the European Hospital in southern Khan Younis, which Reuters was able to visit. The corpses were placed on a mattress in his donkey cart.
He said, “I found them face down in the street.”
It was unsafe to go outside to the cemetery, so dead were being buried on the grounds of the major Nasser hospital in Khan Younis, the largest hospital still in operation in the Gaza Strip. Medical personnel were unable to move critical patients from the Nasser Medical Complex to the adjacent Jordanian field hospital because of continuous bombardment, according to Ashraf Al-Qidra, a spokesman for Gaza’s health ministry.
Hospital employees and Hamas refute Israel’s claim that Hamas fighters are active in and around hospitals. According to UN emergency relief coordinator Martin Griffiths, 24 people lost their lives on Tuesday as a result of bombs targeting a humanitarian zone, a UN center, and an aid warehouse in the Khan Younis region. He said on a social media platform that there was intense bombardment at a distribution center where aid is given to families.
