Vice President Kamala Harris clarified her remarks on Gaza, emphasizing a proposed six-week truce for a hostage deal rather than an immediate ceasefire.

Her statement at the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma aimed to appease the left-wing base, linking the Palestinian cause to civil rights.

“Given the immense scale of suffering in Gaza, there must be an immediate ceasefire,” Harris said, “for at least the next six weeks, which is what currently is on the table.”

While her call for an immediate ceasefire excited some, it essentially echoed Biden’s proposal for a temporary halt in fighting as part of a hostage exchange.

The administration’s increasing use of the term “ceasefire” may signal a shift towards demanding an unconditional ceasefire.

Harris is scheduled to meet with Israeli opposition leader Benny Gantz.
