Biden presses Netanyahu on Gaza ceasefire

President Biden said in a phone call Wednesday with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu that he “expected a significant de-escalation today on the path to a ceasefire," the White House said in a statement.

  • Why it matters: This is the fourth phone call between Biden and Netanyahu since the beginning of the crisis in Gaza and another sign of growing U.S. pressure on Israel to end its operation against Hamas in Gaza.
  • The other side: Netanyahu has resisted calls for a ceasefire and insisted there can be no time limit on Israel's operation.
