PM’s Office Doesn’t Send Delegation to Washington, Says Hamas Has Rejected All US Proposed Compromises

The Prime Minister’s Office responded to the USA’s refusal to veto a UN Security Council decision that called for a ceasefire without the release of the hostages. “The USA has retracted its consistent position that a ceasefire and the release of the hostages must be connected, which it demonstrated just a few days ago.”

“In a previous resolution, Russia and China vetoed a call for a ceasefire because they support a ceasefire without the release of the hostages. The current resolution was supported by Russia, China, Algeria, and other countries.”

“The USA did not veto a new wording of the resolution that calls for a ceasefire without the release of the hostages. This is a clear withdrawal from the USA’s consistent position in the Security Council since the beginning of the war,” the Office added.

Prime Minister Netanyahu has clarified that if the USA withdraws from its principled position, he will not send an Israeli delegation to the USA. “In light of the change in the American position, the Prime Minister has decided that the delegation will in fact not be sent,” the Office explained. The delegation would participate in a series of conferences regarding coordinating an operation in Rafah with the USA.

The Prime Minister’s Office on Tuesday morning, March 26, also said that Hamas is not interested in a prisoner swap agreement. “Hamas has once again rejected every US compromise and returned to its extremist demands: an immediate end to the war, the IDF’s complete withdrawal from the Strip, and remaining in power so that they can repeat the October 7 massacre over and over again, as they have promised to do,” the Office said in a statement.

“Israel will not cave to Hamas’ outrageous demands, and will continue operating to achieve all of the goals of the war: the release of all the hostages, the destruction of Hamas’ military and governing abilities, and ensuring that Gaza will never again threaten Israel.” (INN / VFI News)

“Our Heavenly Father, we pray for an end to the months-long war that will ensure the return of all our hostages. We pray that You guide our leaders to make the best decisions for them and our nation. We pray that the terrorists’s attempts will fail and that the hostages are released with no further delay, in Yeshua’s name. May You keep all the hostages safe from violence and diseases, and heal their physical and psychological wounds.”
