Lebanese PM Says Gaza Ceasefire Would End Conflict on Its Border with Israel

HeadlineMar 01, 2024

Yemen’s Houthi movement warned it’s planning “surprise” military operations in the Red Sea against Israeli, U.S. and other targets over the assault on Gaza.

Meanwhile, Lebanon’s caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati said a ceasefire in Gaza would trigger negotiations to halt fighting between Hezbollah and Israeli forces.

Prime Minister Najib Mikati: “We are saying, God willing, if we are able to reach a cessation of military activities in Gaza, then I believe that we will have ahead of us weeks packed with negotiations, so that we can reach what I have always called long-term stability in the south of Lebanon.”
