Interior minister Gideon Sa'ar said Netanyahu was right to order Israel's delegation to return to Israel from Cairo.
"They shouldn't go back," he said. "Reaching a deal with Hamas is mistaken and has no purpose. It is wrong to give Hamas achievements unilaterally. It could help them take over the PA and become the official rep of the PA. We need to decide not to try anymore to reach a deal with Hamas, which is like making a deal with ISIS."
