Israeli media reported that the US is calling for a ceasefire and refraining from further escalations; lest the confrontation spreads out to other fronts.
Gil Tamari, the foreign affairs editor at Israeli Channel 13, said that "Israel" has international support for its action as is the case with the start of every military operation, however, this time is different: whereby external support is faltering, and the reason is the harm of innocent people during Israeli operations.
He pointed out that the Americans currently do not call for a cease-fire publicly, but in the talks between US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and his Israeli counterpart Tzachi Hanegbi with US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Security Minister Yoav Gallant, the Americans talked about the need for a cease-fire and refraining from additional escalation.
He noted that the main issue of concern for the Americans is the escalation spreading out into other arenas and that if the events do not end quickly, the situation could get out of control.
