Israel must continue negotiations with Hamas for a ceasefire, Meretz MK Michal Rozin said Thursday morning, after over 12 hours of rocket fire from Gaza into Israel.


"Once again an escalation is closer than an agreement," Rozin said. "We are at a critical point in time that will decide how the rest of the summer will look for many families in the South and the entire country."


Rozin said now is the time "to act responsibly and with restraint and to exhaust all possibilities for a dialogue with the partners in negotiations. In war, everyone loses."


The Meretz lawmaker added that the government must do all it can to "stop the snowball that is rolling and growing at a frightening speed."
