OC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. Tal Russo said Wednesday that he did not know how long the cease-fire would last, because there are many different organizations in Gaza and there is no one body that has full control.

The IDF is following the events and is preparing for all possibilities, Russo said in a visit to a school in Omer, a small village near Beersheba. If the silence is broken we have many tools to respond with, and in the last round we did not use them all, Russo emphasized.  

"Much greater action may be required in the future, but we need to know that there are no magic solutions," he said.
