Live blog: Israel agrees on ‘little pauses’ over Gaza strikes — Netanyahu

0439 GMT — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel was open to “little pauses” in its bombardments — although it was not clear whether some kind of small stoppage had been agreed to or whether the US was satisfied with the scope of the Israeli commitment.

US President Joe Biden had raised the need for humanitarian pauses directly with Netanyahu on a call earlier Monday, but there was no agreement reached, the White House said.

Lulls in the fighting are being sought to facilitate humanitarian aid deliveries and the release of some of the estimated 240 hostages that Hamas seized when it initiated Operation Al Aqsa Flood on October 7, a multi-pronged surprise attack including a barrage of rocket launches and infiltrations into Israel via land, sea and air.

Netanyahu, in an interview Monday night with ABC News, also said there would be no general ceasefire in Gaza without the release of the hostages.

0155 GMT — UNSC fails to agree on war pause or ceasefire as Gaza death toll passes 10,000

The UN Security Council failed again to agree on a resolution on the monthlong Israeli assault on Gaza.

Despite more than two hours of closed-door discussions Monday, differences remained. The US is calling for “humanitarian pauses” while many other council members are demanding a “humanitarian ceasefire” to deliver desperately needed aid and prevent more civilian deaths in Gaza.

“We talked about humanitarian pauses and we’re interested in pursuing language on that score,” US deputy ambassador Robert Wood told reporters after the meeting. “But there are disagreements within the council about whether that’s acceptable.”

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres earlier Monday told reporters he wanted an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza and a halt to the “spiral of escalation” already taking place from the occupied West Bank, Lebanon and Syria to Iraq and Yemen.

Guterres said international humanitarian law, which demands protection of civilians and infrastructure essential for their lives, is clearly being violated and stressed that “no party to an armed conflict is above” these laws.

0110 GMT — Netanyahu: Israel to take ‘overall security responsibility’ of Gaza after war

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his country will take “overall responsibility” of Gaza’s security for an indefinite period after its war with Hamas ends.

“Israel will, for an indefinite period, will have the overall security responsibility,” he said in a television interview with ABC News broadcast.

“When we don’t have that security responsibility, what we have is the eruption of Hamas terror on a scale that we couldn’t imagine,” he added.

0000 GMT — Palestine Red Crescent says Al Quds Hospital to run out of fuel in 48 hours

The Palestine Red Crescent Society warned that fuel reserves at Al Quds Hospital in Gaza City will run out in 48 hours as Israel has been barring the entry of fuel into Gaza since October 7.

In a statement, it said that once the fuel runs out, vital equipment at the hospital will shut down including resuscitation equipment, baby incubators and intensive care units.

It added that the hospital is already suffering from a severe lack of medicines and food and water for its medical staff, patients and displaced people.
