Israeli official: We’ve not agreed to end war, and we’ll not let mediators guarantee an to end war either

In the second statement in hours, a diplomatic official again denies reports that Israel will agree to a hostages-for-truce agreement with Hamas that includes an Israeli commitment to end the war in Gaza.

The official further says that reports suggesting Israel will agree to the mediators providing guarantees for an end to the war are also false.

The source says Hamas is still demanding that Israel agree to end the war as a condition for any deal, “and in doing so is thwarting the possibility to reach an agreement.”
