Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office on Thursday announced an Egyptian-brokered cease-fire to halt an 11-day military operation against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip.


Israel’s cabinet agreed “to accept the Egyptian initiative for a bilateral cease-fire without any conditions, which will take effect later,” Netanyahu’s office said in a statement.

The development followed growing U.S. and international pressure on Israel to call off a military operation that pounded the Gaza Strip with airstrikes for almost two weeks. Hamas fired rockets indiscriminately into civilian areas in Israel.

Israel described the truce as “mutual and unconditional.”

  1. USA Today makes me sick.
    If ever there was a leftist/Marxist junk tabloid….this is it!!! Spews lies all the time.

  2. Someone sabotage the teleprompter and see the real Biden …..oh, that's right…. there is really is nothing to see…

  3. the real Credit of palestenian Isreal quick ending go the Trump new ideaology removing replacing Isreal first to American First and do not destroy american hard working money in war specially war for the security of Isreal. once again Biden proved that old snake is more posion by helping to Isreal with money in corona Virus pendemic Even though many Americans lost their jobs poverty increasing american debt reached to 28T$ and china defeating USA in every type of war.

  4. israel should be penalized for its continue occupation on basis of laws. he should restricted from improving its arm amunation and should be prohibited from weapon deals as he had refused the UN order to stop escalation.

  5. Prime Minister Menachem Begin response to then-Sen. Joseph Biden in 1982.

    At the time, Biden was chastising Begin during a Senate hearing over Israel’s settlement policy in the West Bank, harshly threatening to cut off economic aid to the Jewish state if it did not immediately cease its settlement activities. Begin forcefully replied to Biden in words equally applicable today:

    “Don’t threaten us with cutting off your aid. It will not work. I am not a Jew with trembling knees. I am a proud Jew with 3,700 years of civilized history. Nobody came to our aid when we were dying in the gas chambers and ovens. Nobody came to our aid when we were striving to create our country. We paid for it. We fought for it. We died for it. We will stand by our principles. We will defend them. And, when necessary, we will die for them again, with or without your aid.”

    Seems there's a history of Israel not giving a shit what Biden says.

    Here's a tip for the libtards: Before you cast a vote for a demented potato head do some research and check whether your candidate has earned any respect at all from other world leaders.

  6. "Mr Biden, thank you for your 5-minute speech. Time now for your cookies and cocoa and your lie down – otherwise we'll be very cranky in the morning, won't we? Nurse? He's ready now."

  7. We know that the United States of America will continue to support the Zionist occupation state in continuing its crimes against the Palestinians, stealing their land and treating them like animals, and will not allow the Israeli Zionist entity to be punished for its crimes that amount to war crimes, because the United States of America is the country that sponsors terrorism in the world, and supports extremists He accuses Hamas, which defends Palestinian human rights. But whatever you do, a day will come when Israel collapses and falls before your eyes, and you will not be able to help it .. God is Great .. Long live Palestine free and Arab from the river to the sea

  8. Self defense when you got the best weapon in the world and funding of billion dollar ??? There are some misunderstanding hereee….
    Biden : we want peace
    Then: sign contract billion dollar of weapon to israel

  14. Next to the netting yahoo or you thought he is in side … No used ur head take rust out you will find the truth

  15. If I were US, I would abide international law , not your self acclaimed international law based on US interest, treat my friends and allies good, fulfill obligation and promises, be a champion in green energy and protection of the environment. These are the core interest of the world, but US fails in every sector. Your core interest now should be creating jobs and getting rid of your mounting debts , solve the world pandemic crisis. If the world is destroyed, where is your hegemony then?
