Biden says Gaza ceasefire by Ramadan ‘looking tough’

ROSE VALLEY, United States: US President Joe Biden warned Friday that it would be “tough” to secure a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas by the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
“It’s looking tough,” Biden told reporters when asked if a deal to halt the five-month-old conflict could be achieved by Ramadan, which is due to start as early as Sunday depending on the sighting of the moon.
Biden added that “I sure am” worried about the possibility of violence in Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem as Ramadan approaches, adding to a similar warning earlier this week.
