Member of Knesset Moti Yogev, a member of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, warned that a ceasefire with Hamas would not be enough of a deterrent against continued rocket fire. The barrage of rockets that hit Israel's south on Monday has prompted talks of a ceasefire with the Hamas, the terrorist group that has controlled Gaza since 2006. 

"The destruction of terrorist homes is good," said Yogev in a Twitter announcement late Monday night, referring to the actions the IDF has taken against terrorists in the West Bank, "but in the Gaza Strip it is not enough. He said that a ceasefire in the face of continued rocket attacks "violates Israel's commitment to its citizens. Deterrence resides only when the leaders of terror are given a price that they will not be able to withstand."
Yogev has been an MK since 2013 and is a member of the Bayit Yehudi party which is running in the upcoming Knesset elctions with the United Right-Wing Parties.
