US welcomes steps to de-escalate situation so Gaza can resume being peaceful open-air prison

The White House said on Thursday that reports of a move toward a ceasefire in Gaza were encouraging, even as Israel threatened to step up strikes and Hamas rocket fire resumed after a pause, so that Gaza could go back to being a peaceful open-air prison not in the eye of the global news media.

Diplomatic efforts for a ceasefire gathered pace on Thursday after US President Joe Biden on Wednesday urged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to seek “de-escalation”, and a Hamas political official, Moussa Abu Marzouk, said he believed a ceasefire would be reached “within a day or two”.

“We envision a situation where Palestinian children can be (relatively) safe from Israeli artillery and airstrikes,” said White House spokesperson Jen Psaki. “and can die peacefully from malnutrition, water-borne diseases. So they can live out their lives peacefully in the discomfort of their own homes where they can be with their families and the unyielding sense of despondency that doesn’t go away even when their eyes are closed and are in deep sleep.”

  1. Cease-fire had to be the end result of this recent conflict. A deep analysis of the situation suggests that the way Hamas fired rockets in response and how Israel’s trust on its Iron Dome air defense system shattered forced Israel to bend on its knees. People of Israel passed nights in bunkers due to fear of being blown away with hamas rockets.
    I would say Muslim countries have lost a golden opportunity of wiping our the cancer (Israel) from Middle East for good. They could have done it by imposing Naval blockade and hitting it from all the sides.
    Iron dome is a flawed system as proved !!
