There is no room for a cease-fire in Gaza, Israel Radio quoted Interior Minister Meir Sheetrit as saying Tuesday morning. The minister said that the government was determined to eliminate the threat of fire on residents of the South, and that the IDF must not end its operation until Hamas's will to fire had been broken. If Israel gives up, he said, it will not have achieved anything. Sheetrit emphasized that the IDF was operating with utmost caution so as not to hurt civilians in the Strip, and said that supplies and medicine were being transferred to Gaza. "The time has come for Israel to say: Our citizens come first," he said.
