Israel and Hamas have downplayed the likelihood of a quick resolution to talks for a cease-fire in Gaza, despite President Joe Biden's statement that Israel is open to halting its operations during Ramadan if an agreement is reached to release some hostages held by Hamas. Negotiators from the U.S., Egypt, and Qatar are collaborating on a proposed framework. This framework involves Hamas releasing some hostages in exchange for the liberation of Palestinian prisoners and a six-week cessation of hostilities.

The pause would allow for ongoing negotiations regarding the remaining hostages. The conflict has led to a humanitarian crisis in Gaza, with global concern particularly focused on Rafah, where 1.4 million Palestinians are seeking refuge from Israeli bombardments.
