What White House said on Israel-Hamas truce extension: ‘We hope to see…’
Israel-Hamas War: "Of course we welcome the announcement," National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said.
The White House welcomed an agreement Monday to extend a truce between Israel and Hamas by two days, saying it was hopeful the humanitarian pause would continue for longer still.
"Of course we welcome the announcement," National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters. “We would of course hope to see the pause extended further, and that will depend upon Hamas continuing to release hostages.”
