Ambassador to US says White House not pushing for Gaza ceasefire

Speaking to Army Radio, Israeli Ambassador to the US Michael Herzog denies that Washington is pressuring Israel for an end to the fighting in Gaza even if it is pushing for a pause in hostilities.

“The US government has questions about the humanitarian side of the war’s management, but I don’t see an American stance of trying to stop us,” he says. “A truce to free hostages, sure, but not calls for a ceasefire.”

He adds that despite differences of opinion among Democrats regarding the US approach to Israel, “their basic support of our war goals has not changed.”
