Joe Biden He stated this Saturday that a ceasefire in the war between Israel and Hamas is possible “tomorrow” if the Palestinian terrorist group releases the hostages.

“There would be a ceasefire tomorrow if Hamas released the hostages,” said the president of the United States at a fundraising event on the outskirts of Seattle, at the home of a former Microsoft executive, after having avoided the topic in three similar events on Friday.

Days ago, the North American president had warned that he would stop supplying Israel “artillery shells” and other weapons if it launches a major offensive against the Palestinian city of Rafah, in an unprecedented warning from Washington.

“If they enter Rafah – they have not entered Rafah yet – if they enter Rafah, I will not supply the weapons that have been used (…) against the cities,” Biden said in an interview with CNN.

“We are not going to supply the weapons and artillery shells that have been used” in Israel’s war against the Hamas terrorist group in the Gaza Strip, he said.

“Civilians have died in Gaza as a result of these bombs” and that “is wrong,” he replied when the network asked him about the suspension last week of the delivery of a shipment of bombs to Israel.

Israeli military spokesman Avichay Adraee posted a message in Arabic on the X network, in which he stated that “terrorist activities by Hamas in recent days and weeks” were observed in these areas.
