President Biden Calls For Humanitarian 'Pause' In Gaza Conflict Amid Evacuation Efforts

President Biden Calls For Humanitarian 'Pause' In Gaza Confl

President Joe Biden has made a significant announcement, calling for a humanitarian "pause" in Israel's conflict with Gaza.

This decision comes as the United States intensifies efforts to evacuate its citizens from the besieged Palestinian enclave.

Aljazeera reported on Thursday that President Biden addressed the ongoing crisis, interrupted by a protester advocating an immediate ceasefire.

“I think we need a pause,” Biden said after being interrupted by a protester who urged for an immediate ceasefire.

When asked what a pause meant, Biden said it was “time to get the prisoners out”. The White House later clarified that this was a reference to the captives held by Hamas.

President Biden's decision to intervene aligns with broader international calls for a ceasefire to protect civilians caught in the crossfire.

The ongoing conflict has resulted in significant civilian casualties and widespread destruction, prompting concerns from the international community. Evacuation efforts, such as the U.S. initiative to rescue its citizens, highlight the perilous conditions faced by those living in the besieged Palestinian enclave.
