Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday defended his decision to agree to a ceasefire with Hamas in Gaza saying he wished to allow Israel's citizens to "return to their normal routine."

Netanyahu stated that Operation Pillar of Defense had successfully destroyed "thousands of Hamas rockets" and destroyed the organizations command centers.

Netanyahu thanked US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for helping to secure the cease-fire agreement in Egypt. He also voiced his gratitude to US President Barack Obama for the Iron Dome rocket defense system and for his support of Israel during the Gaza operation.

The prime minister said that Obama showed "unwavering support for Israel's right to defend itself." He added that the US and Israel would cooperate going forward in halting the smuggling of weapons from Iran into the Gaza Strip.
