— Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen said that his office recognizes an increase in political pressure on Israel to work towards a cease-fire in the was with Hamas. Cohen estimates that Israel has between two and three weeks before international pressure on Israel ratchets up. He is quoted as saying that "from a political point of view, we recognize that Israel has come under more pressure … The pressure is not very high, but it is increasing." He added that "in conversations I hold with foreign ministers, they emphasize the humanitarian issue [in Gaza], the aspect of their identification and shock from the Oct. 7 massacre is reduced. There are also those who request – not publicly – to work towards a cease-fire."
