Israel Cancels Official Delegation Trip to Washington in Protest of UN Ceasefire Resolution for Gaza Conflict

Netanyahu: Cancelled Trip to US Sends Message to Hamas

On Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made the decision to cancel an official delegation’s trip to Washington in response to the United Nations Security Council’s resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza. According to Netanyahu, this move was aimed at sending a clear message to Hamas that pressure tactics should not be trusted. He emphasized that both the resolution and the US’s abstention from the vote had emboldened Hamas to take a more aggressive stance against Israel.

The delegation was originally scheduled to travel to Washington to discuss a potential military offensive against the city of Rafah in southern Gaza. President Joe Biden had requested Netanyahu consider targeting Hamas in Gaza without a major ground offensive after gaining support for the UN Security Council resolution, marking the first time since the conflict began. Despite this cancellation, talks between Israel and Hamas are still ongoing in Doha.

Netanyahu criticized Hamas for their lack of interest in negotiating a ceasefire agreement, citing their extreme demands as the reason for this failure. The conflict between Israel and Hamas has resulted in significant casualties on both sides.
