By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today is the fifth day of an agreed ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.
Palestinian militant group Hamas has since released 12 more hostages, a move to delay the expected resumption of the war.
According to the Associated Press, Israel faced increased pressure to better protect Palestinian civilians in Gaza if its offensive resumes.
Israel said 10 of its citizens and 2 foreigners were freed by Hamas and had entered Egypt.
Israel has vowed to resume the war with “full force” to destroy Hamas once it’s clear that no more hostages will be freed under the deal.
The Biden administration has told Israel it must avoid “significant further displacement” and mass casualties among Palestinian civilians if it resumes the offensive, and that it must operate with more precision in southern Gaza than it has in the north, according to U.S. officials.
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is scheduled to visit the region this week, also with an eye to extending the truce.
