Hopes of halting war in Gaza?

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday Israel will continue its war against Hamas, even if a temporary cease-fire is reached with the Islamic militant group.

In comments ahead of an expected Cabinet vote for a cease-fire proposal, Netanyahu vowed to press ahead. “We are at war, and we will continue the war,” he said. “We will continue until we achieve all our goals.”

He also thanked the US President Joe Biden for his part in the deal "to include more hostages and fewer prices."

The Cabinet was expected to vote on a plan on Tuesday that would halt Israel’s offensive in Gaza for several days in exchange for the release of about 50 of the 240 hostages held by Hamas.

Israel has vowed to continue the war until it destroys Hamas’ military capabilities and returns all hostages.
