Israel Agrees to Framework of Biden’s Gaza Peace Plan Despite Concerns, Aims for Ceasefire and Hostage Release

In a recent development regarding the ongoing conflict in Gaza, a top adviser revealed that Israel has agreed to the framework of US President Joe Biden’s plan aimed at ending the war in Gaza. Despite acknowledging the plan’s flaws and the need for significant improvements, the acceptance comes with the hope of securing the release of all hostages. The proposed three-part plan includes a six-week ceasefire, during which the Israeli Defense Forces would pull back from populated areas in Gaza, the release of hostages, and the initiation of reconstruction efforts in the region. This move has generated various political reactions within Israel and views from Hamas.

  • Israel has agreed to the framework of President Joe Biden’s plan to end the war in Gaza, admitting the plan is flawed but accepting it in the hope of releasing hostages.
  • The proposed deal includes a six-week ceasefire, a withdrawal of Israeli Defense Forces from populated areas in Gaza, securing the release of hostages, and outlining reconstruction plans for Gaza.
  • Despite several ceasefire proposals from Joe Biden, all previous attempts have collapsed. Netanyahu has been firm on not considering a permanent ceasefire until all Israeli objectives, notably the destruction of Hamas’s military capabilities, are met.
  • Pressure from families of hostages and tens of thousands of protestors in Tel Aviv mounts on Netanyahu, urging the Prime Minister not to thwart the deal.
  • Political tension within Israel is evident as Foreign Ministers Itamar Ben-Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich threatened to quit and dissolve the government if the deal proceeds.
  • Hamas has stated it views the proposal positively, hinting at a rare moment of agreement across the conflict lines.
