Transportation Minister Israel Katz said he opposed the ceasefire on Tuesday morning and that under the current circumstance, "we could have have achieved much more."
He said that rocket threats from Gaza have not been removed and that the Hamas leadership has not been destroyed, adding "ending the battle this way will bring heavy pressure upon Israel."
"They're saying Hamas' military wing rejects the proposal? Nonsense! They can recognize a good deal when they see one," he concluded.
