Netanyahu rejected Biden’s call for a “significant reduction” in strikes on Gaza

The Israeli Prime Minister said that the operation against Hamas militants would continue, “until its goal is achieved.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rejected US President Joe Biden’s call for a “significant reduction” in Israeli bomb attacks on Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip, which would lead to a cease-fire after 10 days of fighting.

Instead, Netanyahu said he was “determined to continue the operation until its goal is achieved.”

Netanyahu said he “very much appreciates the support of the American president,” but Israel will go further “to return calm and security to the citizens of Israel.”

Israel and Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip have exchanged new strikes, despite numerous attempts by regional and international parties to achieve a cease-fire, including Biden’s efforts during his fourth conversation with Netanyahu since the fighting began last week.

According to the White House, Biden told the Israeli leader “he expects a significant de-escalation today on the path to a cease-fire.”
