Israel gives only condition for ceasefire

Israel has given condition to agree to a ceasefire in the ongoing war with Hamas.

The European country said it will not yield to any agreement unless hostages in Gaza are released.

Prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu said this on Sunday, insisting that Israel would not agree to a ceasefire as the war against Hamas in Gaza enters its seventh month,
until the hostages being held in Gaza are released.
He made the comments at the start of a weekly cabinet meeting and this came as a new round of truce talks in Egypt are set to begin.

Netanyahu said that, despite growing international pressure, Israel would not give in to “extreme” demands from Hamas, the militant group which runs Gaza, which sparked the war on 7 October with its deadly attack on southern Israel.
