Biden Administration Calls for Ceasefire After Israel Rescues 4 Hostages – EVOL

The Biden administration has called for Israel and Hamas to engage in negotiations and ceasefire talks after the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) rescued four hostages.

White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan released a statement addressing the news that the IDF, Israel Security Agency (ISA), and the Israeli police had conducted a joint operation rescuing four hostages, who had been taken by Hamas on October 7, 2023, from the Supernova Music Festival.

Sullivan noted in his statement that the United States government was “supporting all efforts to secure the release” of the remaining hostages held by Hamas, and went on to encourage efforts such as conducting “ongoing negotiations” and pointed to a “hostage release and ceasefire deal” that he said “has the full backing of the United States.”

“The United States is supporting all efforts to secure the release of hostages still held by Hamas, including American citizens,” Sullivan said in his statement. “This includes through ongoing negotiations or other means. The hostage release and ceasefire deal that is now on the table would secure the release of all the remaining hostages together with security assurances for Israel and relief for the innocent civilians in Gaza.”
