Washington:

War continues between Israel and Hamas in Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden said on Friday that he is "hoping" for a ceasefire agreement in the Israel-Hamas conflict by the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, but the agreement is still not sealed.

About 1.5 million Palestinians are currently trapped in the southern Gaza city of Rafah due to repeated bombings and ground attacks by Israel.

When Biden was asked if he expected a deal by Ramadan, which begins March 10 or 11, he told media at the White House, "I'm hoping so, we're still working on that." However, we have not reached there on either side yet."

"We'll get there, but we're not there yet," Biden said without elaborating as he headed to his helicopter to spend the weekend at the presidential Camp David retreat.

According to an AFP report

, Biden said earlier this week that he hoped for an agreement by Monday to stop the fighting between Israel and Hamas for six weeks, but he continues to miss the deadline.

The 81-year-old Democrat announced earlier Friday that the United States would soon begin providing air aid to Gaza, a day after dozens of desperate Palestinians attacked an aid convoy.

Biden has said the incident could complicate negotiations, but he would not comment Friday on what was holding up a deal, saying, "I'm not going to tell you that, because it's a big deal in the negotiations." will be attending."

According to Gaza's Health Ministry, the number of Palestinians killed in the war between Israel and Hamas has crossed 30,000.

More than 100 people were killed on Thursday when Israeli soldiers attacked a Palestinian crowd waiting for relief supplies in Gaza City.

With this, the number of people killed in the Israel-Hamas war that started about five months ago has increased to more than 30 thousand.
