Netanyahu tells Biden Israel will resume Gaza operation after truce

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday told US President Joe Biden that Israel would resume its campaign in Gaza with full force once a temporary truce comes to an end, Reuters reported.

However, Netanyahu also said he would welcome extending the truce if it facilitated the release of 10 additional hostages every day, as agreed under the original Qatari-brokered deal.

To date, there have been 117 prisoners released during the temporary truce and 54 hostages.
