Should the rocket fire emanating from Gaza stop, then the IDF will abide by the resulting ceasefire, Army Radio, citing an advisory group of nine ministers, reported Tuesday.

However, should the rocket fire be renewed over the next few weeks, then Israel will increase the severity of its response in order to enhance its deterrence, the ministers reportedly concluded.

According to Army Radio, this course of action was agreed to during a meeting of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's advisory group of nine ministers, known as the nonet, to discuss this week's escalation in the South.
