Former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton goes viral with a long explanation of the situation in Gaza and why she is not calling for a ceasefire.

“Remember, there was a ceasefire on October 6, that Hamas broke by their barbaric assault on peaceful civilians,” she tells “The View,” an ABC daytime show. “There was a ceasefire. It did not hold because Hamas chose to break it.”

“Hamas have consistently broken ceasefires over a number of years,” she says.

“Israel has a right to defend itself, as does Ukraine,” she says.

“Israel should conduct itself by the rules of war and do everything it can to prevent and limit civilian casualties,” she says

“Those three things are all true themselves,” says the former top US envoy.

Clinton explains that she has been to Gaza and understands the situation there and Hamas’s use of civilians “as tools of war.”

“I think we’re now moving toward a position where humanitarian pauses are on the table, as they should be,” she says.

“We should remember over 240 innocent people — not only Israelis — are held hostage [in Gaza],” she says. “This is a multinational hostage situation.”

Clinton also explains attempts over the years for a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians, as well as Israel’s unilateral withdrawal from the Gaza Strip.

“I believe it’s imperative… to try finally to dislodge Hamas and have a leadership that will work for a two-state solution, which should be the outcome we all hope and pray for,” Clinton says.
