Just one month after the commencement of a fierce conflict between the Israeli military and Hamas militants, Israel has agreed to implement four-hour pauses in fighting each day in the northern Gaza strip, the White House has said.
John Kirby, the spokesperson for the White House National Security Council, stated that the Israelis have assured that there will be no military operations in those areas during the specified pause. The announcement will be made three hours in advance, and the process began today.
It’s worth recalling that on October 7, 2023, tensions escalated into armed conflict between Israel and Hamas-led Palestinian militants from the Gaza Strip. This followed a multi-pronged invasion of Southern Israel by the latter. Reports indicate that at least 10,812 Palestinians have lost their lives in the conflict in the Gaza Strip since October 7.
