( – On Tuesday, the Biden administration is planning to call for the U.N. Security Council to take action in its temporary cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war. 

The administration stated that they have already drafted a resolution for the Security Council which includes a part calling for a temporary cease-fire. They further called for Israel to not head into Rafah in the Gaza Strip. 

Reuters noted that the U.S. text stated that they had determined that under the circumstances a major ground offensive into Rafah was going to cause additional harm to civilians and could lead to them being displaced into other neighboring countries. 

Former NSC official Richard Goldberg had told Fox News Digital that the United States needed to veto any pro-Hamas resolution rather than being the one to propose them. He added that by bringing forward a ceasefire resolution and going against the Israeli military action in Rafah the White House was essentially supporting having Hamas survive for another day and potentially bring forward another massacre. He added that this was a betrayal of the interests of the United States as well as its values. 

One senior administration official, who requested anonymity, argued that they did not believe it was necessary to rush a vote and that instead, they needed to allow more time for negotiations. 

Israel has opposed all of the attempts of the Biden administration to block its seizure of Rafah, which is one of the last areas that the Hamas terrorists and hostages are believed to be. 

On Friday, President Biden stated that he was hoping that Israel would not make a large ground invasion into Rafah.
