Economy Minister Naftali Bennett said on Friday, "I remind the Israeli public: Operation Protective Edge is not over."

Bennett's comments came after the 72-hour Egyptian-brokered cease-fire came to an end at 8 a.m. on Friday morning and was immediately followed by salvos of rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.

"Israel must recall its delegation from Egypt immediately," he said adding that talks could not possibly go on while Hamas used rocket fire on Israeli civilians as strategy to put pressure on negotiators in Cairo.

Bennett told the Israeli public to "be strong" and prepare for what will come.
