Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu assessed the prospects for a ceasefire in the war with Hamas in the Gaza Strip in the near future as unlikely.

According to him, the ceasefire and release agreement proposed by US President Joe Biden hostages held by militants is only a sketch.

Netanyahu has long insisted on eliminating Hamas in Gaza. In his statement, he emphasized: "The allegations that we agreed to a ceasefire without fulfilling our conditions are untrue,", reports the Voice of America.

Last week, Biden outlined a new ceasefire plan in the Gaza Strip that includes an initial cessation of fighting and the release of some hostages held by Hamas.

While Israeli officials questioned the details of the truce proposal, the Army The Israeli Defense Forces reported that four more hostages taken by Hamas had been confirmed dead. Among them – three elderly men who pleaded in vain for their captors to release them.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken discussed the proposal with Israeli officials, the US State Department said on Sunday, June 2, noting that the plan “is in Israel's long-term security interests.” ;.
