The White House is currently evaluating Hamas's response to Israel's proposed ceasefire deal, according to National Security Communications Advisor John Kirby. The assumption is that the response, delivered to Qatar, came with Yaha Sinwar's approval. Kirby stated that if the deal is put in place, the fighting in Gaza would stop, allowing for the safe release of hostages. Phase one of the deal would involve up to 600 aid trucks entering Gaza daily, with the potential for a total cessation of hostilities in phase two. Kirby also commented on messages revealed by the Wall Street Journal, stating that they are "certainly not uncharacteristic" of Sinwar's brutality and willingness to advance his own agenda at the expense of innocent Palestinians. He emphasized that the war could end quickly if Sinwar were to do the right thing.
