Hamas official talks to Al Jazeera about Israel conflict

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Hamas official talks to Al Jazeera about Israel conflict” – below is their description.

Israeli fighter jets continued to pummel the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, flattening residential buildings and raising the death toll to at least 227. Gaza’s health ministry said the dead included 64 children and 38 women.

On the 10th day of the escalating violence, US President Joe Biden discussed the Gaza events with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying he expected “a significant de-escalation today on the path to a ceasefire”.

However, Netanyahu said after the phone call with Biden that he was “determined” to continue bombarding Gaza until Israel’s “aim is met”.

Meanwhile, diplomatic efforts for a ceasefire between Israel and Gaza’s Hamas rulers have failed to make much headway.
