WASHINGTON DC, 28th Feb.
US President Biden on Tuesday has said that he expects a ceasefire to take effect in Gaza by March 4 on the conclusion of negotiations to free Israeli hostages being held by Hamas.

Biden said “I hope by the end of the weekend,” he said on Monday when asked by reporters when he expected a cease-fire. “My national security adviser tells me that we’re close. We’re close. We’re not done yet. My hope is by next Monday, we’ll have a cease-fire.”

He was in New York and made these remarks at a stop at an ice cream store.

Israeli negotiators are in Doha for hostage negotiations with mediators from Egypt and Qatar, who are separately talking with Hamas representatives.

The Israeli war cabinet cleared terms this past weekend for the release of 40 hostages in return for a six-week truce which could take effect at the start of Ramadan, according to White House officials.
