A spokesperson for the United States National Security Council responds to a report US officials told Israel it has until the end of 2023 to conclude the war in Gaza against Hamas.

“These are Israeli military operations, and the Israelis will decide their course. We will continue to support Israel’s efforts to defend itself from Hamas terrorists,” the spokesperson says.

According to a report Friday, in Politico, which cited three anonymous Israeli officials, Biden administration officials have told Israel it has until the end of the month to wrap up the war against the terror group.

The news outlet noted US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s reported warning last week that Israel likely has “weeks,” not months, to wrap up the fighting.
