“Our demand is clear—a complete ceasefire. We will not suffice with less than this.”
This is what Prime Minister Netanyahu demanded at the start of his weekly cabinet meeting. The full objective is to restore quiet and calm to the residents of southern Israel and the area adjacent to the Gaza Strip.

Education Minister and Security Cabinet Member Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) is calling for a new strategy to deal with Hamas and said, “We must not allow the situation to continue in which Hamas dictates the pace of life of the residents of the State of Israel.”
