Biden says Israel would halt Gaza action during Ramadan under truce deal

US President Joe Biden says Israel agreed that it would halt its Gaza offensive during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan under a truce deal that is being negotiated.

“Ramadan’s coming up and there’s been an agreement by the Israelis that they would not engage in activities during Ramadan as well, in order to give us time to get all the hostages out,” Biden says in an interview with late-night comic Seth Meyers on the US network NBC.
