US Continues to Seek Negotiated Solution to Israel-Hamas Conflict Amid Rejected Ceasefire Proposals



The United States continues to advocate for a negotiated resolution to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, despite the rejection of ceasefire proposals by both parties. Israel’s Prime Minister has dismissed a counter-offer from Hamas, emphasizing a commitment to continue military efforts until Hamas is defeated. This stance comes amid attempts by Egypt, Qatar, and the U.S. to mediate a ceasefire, which so far have not led to a halt in hostilities. The situation underscores the complexities of achieving peace in the region, with both internal and external pressures influencing the course of action.
