Biden calls for ceasefire between Israel and Palestine

Staff Correspondent
After an eight-day Israeli offensive in Palestine, US President Joe Biden has finally called for a "ceasefire" there. He called on the Israeli government and Hamas.

The British media BBC reported this information in a report on Tuesday, May 18.

Biden has told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that his country is working with three countries, including Egypt, to end the conflict in Gaza.

Meanwhile, Israel's continued offensive in the besieged Gaza Strip is in its second week. Hamas is also retaliating. The ongoing conflict is unlikely to end any time soon. At least 212 people, including 61 children, have been killed in Israeli airstrikes in Gaza. At least 10 people, including two children, have been killed in Israel.

Israel claims that most Palestinians killed in their attacks are "militants" and that the deaths of innocent civilians are unintended. However, Hamas has denied Israel's claim.

A statement from the White House said, "Biden urges Israel to take all necessary measures to ensure the safety of innocent civilians. Biden and Netanyahu also discussed the progress of the ongoing campaign against Hamas and other terrorist groups in Gaza."

"President Biden has stated his position in favor of a ceasefire and has since discussed his country's negotiations with Egypt and other allies," it said.

The devastation in Gaza has received a worldwide response. World leaders and human rights groups have called for effective action to stop the deaths and destruction of civilians.
