Economy Minister Naftali Bennett commended as "blackmail" on Thursday Hamas's refusal to extend the temporary cease-fire set to last until Friday morning unless Israel accepts all of the terror group's demands.

Bennett said he was supporting Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's "stance against terror's blackmail attempts at he expense of Israeli citizens."

"Israel must not be held hostage by Hamas. Any concession for Hamas today will become tomorrow's wars" he warned.
