On Monday, the offices of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and representatives from Hamas refuted claims suggesting the implementation of a temporary ceasefire in Gaza. Contrary to earlier reports indicating a cessation of hostilities to facilitate humanitarian aid and the safe departure of foreigners through the Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt, both parties clarified the absence of any such agreement.
A statement from Netanyahu’s office explicitly stated, “There is currently no ceasefire and humanitarian aid in Gaza in return for removing foreigners.”
Similarly, as reported by CBS, Hamas official Izzat El Reshiq dismissed any validity in the speculation surrounding the opening of the Rafah border crossing or the existence of a temporary ceasefire.
Israeli Military Discovers Abducted Hostages’ Bodies in Gaza, Outlines Next Steps Against Hamas
In a related development, the Israeli military has unveiled its planned course of action after discovering deceased hostages reportedly taken captive by Hamas militants several days ago.
During a briefing, Israeli military spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner confirmed the identification of the hostages’ remains during operations conducted within Gaza last week.
Denial of Temporary Ceasefire by Israel and Hamas
Earlier reports from Israel had indicated the abduction of approximately 120 individuals following Hamas-led attacks within Israel on October 7, resulting in a devastating toll of at least 1,300 lives lost.
Since the initial incident, the Israeli military has undertaken targeted incursions into Gaza, supporting an ongoing aerial campaign against the region. Hamas officials claim the airstrikes have led to a staggering death toll of at least 2,215 within the territory.
Offering further insights into recent operations, Lerner emphasized the discovery of the hostages’ bodies during “small, close-perimeter raids into the Gaza Strip.” The Israeli military has executed numerous airstrikes on thousands of identified Hamas targets in Gaza.
