Blinken, Cameron describe cease-fire deal as ‘generous’ to Hamas

In Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Secretary of State Antony Blinken discussed efforts involving Qatar, Egypt, and other nations to broker a cease-fire and secure the release of hostages. Blinken emphasized that Hamas holds the key to a cease-fire in Gaza, with Israel offering what he termed as a very generous proposal. British Foreign Secretary David Cameron also noted the proposed 40-day cease-fire, akin to a six-week pause sought by negotiators. President Biden urged Hamas to promptly release all hostages during a call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Hamas officials are considering the proposal, with discussions ongoing about key points such as the return of displaced persons and troop withdrawal. International pressure mounts for an agreement on hostages before a potential Israeli assault on Rafah, identified as a remaining Hamas stronghold in southern Gaza, where many displaced civilians have sought refuge.
