United States Deemed as Only Country Able to Stop Violence in Gaza

(AmericanProsperity.com) – Egypt’s Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry, said that the United States should use its influence over Israel to prevent further violence in Gaza.

“Only the United States has the overall ability to influence conditions, and to motivate all sides concerned to find the point of convergence, and to be able to break the cycle of violence,” he said.

He continued to say that the United States should “leverage their ability to provide incentives, but also to indicate consequences for the lack of achievement or the lack of progress in the cessation of hostilities.”

According to a Hamas official, they are reviewing Israel’s most recent Gaza ceasefire proposal. The new proposal is backed and pushed by Egypt and is aimed at stopping the potential assault on Rafah, the city where millions of people are currently sheltering from Israeli Defense Forces.

Israel has been threatening to send its troops into the city of Rafah which borders Egypt, for months now. Multiple leaders including the Palestinian President have called on the United States to stop the violence in Gaza and prevent an attack on Rafah.

The United States Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, will visit Saudi Arabia to “discuss ongoing efforts to achieve a ceasefire in Gaza that secures the release of hostages and how it is Hamas that is standing between the Palestinian people and a ceasefire.”

The war with Gaza has been chaotic and resulted in the dislocation of millions of Palestinians. Israel has cut off the food and water supply to Gaza.
