John Kirby Explains What Ended The Cease-Fire And Why Hamas Is To Blame

The White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby blames Hamas for ending the temporary cease-fire with Israel, stating that the U.S. believes eight or nine Americans are still held hostage by Hamas in Gaza.

Israel has committed to removing Hamas from power in Gaza, while the U.S. supports Israel’s efforts against what they describe as a genocidal threat.

“We just don’t have perfect visibility,” said Kirby.

Adding, “We’re at this literally by the hour, and we want to get that [cease-fire] put back in place so that, again, more hostages can come out.”

“Hamas is the reason that the pause ended, because they refused to put on the list additional women and children that we know that they are holding and they’re refusing to let go,” Kirby said. “We are working literally by the hour to see if we can get this back on track,” continued Biden’s security advisor.

“What’s being done with U.S. military and security assistance is helping our friend and partner, Israel, go after a truly genocidal threat, a threat posed by Hamas,” said Kirby to the reporters.

“And I think it’s just too easy as we get further and further and further away from the 7th of October to forget what happened on that day: 1,200 Israeli literally slaughtered, kids in front of their parents, parents in front of their kids. And we’ve got to help Israel eliminate their threat to the Israeli nation and the Israeli people from that threat, from Hamas, and we’re going to keep doing that, absolutely.”

Israel has ordered more evacuations in and around Gaza as the military’s offensive shifts to the southern half of the territory.

“We don’t want to see them occupy Gaza,” admitted Kirby.

Adding, “We don’t think that that is a long-term strategic goal that is really achievable or wise for the Israeli people. We believe that at the core, the future of governance in Gaza has got to be something that the Palestinian people have a vote in, a voice in. That they have governance that it truly representative of them and their aspirations.”
