Iran is discussing the possibility of a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. The Commander-in-Chief of the IRGC, Hossein Salami, stated that the Zionists are in a crisis and waiting for a ceasefire, but the Americans do not allow it. Both Iranian and Gulf media focused on yesterday’s BRICS summit with reference to a ceasefire. Saudi Arabia called for a Palestinian state and an immediate and permanent humanitarian truce leading to a cessation of hostilities in Gaza. Russian President Vladimir Putin called for a political solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and involvement of regional states and members of the BRICS group of countries in reaching such a settlement. The article also covers statements from UAE’s President Sheikh Mohamed and Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi condemning Israel and the US for their actions. Other news mentioned the support for a field hospital in Gaza, comments from Egypt and Saudi Arabia at the BRICS meeting, and Israel being a threat to regional peace. Overall, the article illustrates that most regional media are not focused on the release of hostages by Hamas and instead primarily focus on the need for a ceasefire or slam Israeli actions.
