(TheRedWire.com) – Pro-Palestinian protestors demanded a cease-fire while protesting outside the home of President Biden in Delaware.
Democratic Socialists of America’s Delaware chapter posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, that people from all across the state were gathered in front of Biden’s home in Wilmington to call for a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war. They also encouraged others to join them.
In the post, there was also a video of a crowd chanting that Biden could not hide and that they would be charging him with genocide.
Throughout the escalation of the conflict in the region, President Biden has expressed strong support for Israel in its war against Hamas, a Palestinian militant group that is in control of Gaza. The war broke out on Oct. 7 following an attack by Hamas against Israel. Earlier this month Biden maintained that Israel continued to have the right to defend itself and its citizens and that they were able to do that in a way that would prioritize the protection of citizens and would be consistent with humanitarian and international law.
More recently, there have been some U.S. officials, members of the White House, and even President Biden who have pushed for a “pause” in the war. However, they have not called for a cease-fire. According to the White House, the pause would simply give them a chance to provide additional humanitarian aid to Gaza, and it would give the citizens of Gaza the right to escape from the war-torn area.
On Thursday the White House revealed that Israel had agreed to pause their operations in Gaza for at least four hours each day in order for civilians to be given a way to evacuate the region. Palestinians are going to be moving from Gaza’s northern part to the southern part. A second safe corridor for those evacuating is also going to be created.
John Kirby, the National Security Council spokesperson claimed that from what they understood the pauses would last for four hours each day, and the announcement of when the pause would be would come out three hours ahead of time.
