President Joe Biden expressed optimism about a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas conflict, stating during an appearance with comedian Seth Meyers that he hopes for a ceasefire by “next Monday.” Biden mentioned that his national security adviser informed him that they are close to achieving it, although it’s not finalized yet.

In related negotiations, Hamas reportedly backed off some significant demands, improving the prospects for a pause in the fighting in Gaza. There were indications of progress, with a senior Biden administration official mentioning that major obstacles related to Hamas’ demands for the withdrawal of Israeli forces and an end to the war had been addressed.

Biden also emphasized that the majority of Palestinians are not affiliated with Hamas and are suffering due to the organization’s actions. This aligns with his earlier statement following the October 7, 2023, attack, where he expressed clear support for Israel and condemned terrorism, highlighting that Hamas does not represent the Palestinian people’s right to dignity and self-determination.
