Gaza cease-fire talks progressing, officials say

A senior U.S. official said Saturday that the response from the militant group Hamas to an existing cease-fire proposal in the war with Israel "may provide the basis for closing the deal." The details of the cease-fire plan were initially outlined by President Biden in May and include the release of female, elderly and wounded hostages in stage one, and the withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza in stage two. Holly Williams has details.


Netanyahu walks back rejection of deal

On Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a televised interview that he would accept a partial deal to temporarily end the fighting with Hamas, in an apparent dismissal of President Biden's proposal for a permanent cease-fire. But one day later Netanyahu claimed there was no discrepancy, saying "We will not end the war until we return all of our hostages … our position has not changed." CBS News foreign correspondent Imtiaz Tyab reports.

Netanyahu increasingly at odds with U.S., IDF

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is starting to look like a man alone on an island after the collapse of his war cabinet and the admission by the IDF's chief spokesperson that Hamas cannot be destroyed, contradicting Netanyahu's stated goal for Israel's war in Gaza. What's more, the White House is expressing dismay with and denying Netanyahu's claim that the U.S. is withholding weapons from Israel. CBS News foreign correspondent Chris Livesay has the latest on the war and John Bresnahan, co-founder of Punchbowl News, joined CBS News to discuss Netanyahu's situation.

White House rift with Netanyahu growing

The White House is taking issue with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's claims in a Tuesday video that the U.S. is keeping weapons and ammunition from the Israelis, with White House national security communications adviser John Kirby calling the video perplexing and disappointing. Doubt is also growing from both U.S. and Israeli officials over Netanyahu's goal of destroying Hamas. CBS News foreign correspondent Chris Livesay has more.
