The United States does not support current calls for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas conflict, the White House said Monday, adding that “pauses” to get aid into Gaza should be considered instead.

“We do not believe that a ceasefire is the right answer right now,” National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said. “We do not support a ceasefire at this time.”
