Mofaz: Hamas won upper hand, ceasefire is a mistake

Politicians to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's right and left spoke out against Wednesday night's ceasefire, with only Labor, Meretz and others on the left supporting it.
"The goals of his operation were not reached, and the next round is only a matter of time," opposition leader Shaul Mofaz (Kadima) said. "We should not have stopped at this stage. Hamas got stronger and we did not gain deterrence." Mofaz referred to his experience as IDF chief of staff and leading Operation Defensive Shield, saying it is possible to defeat terror.
"The army knows how to do its work, and we could have won this time. A ceasefire at this point is a mistake; this is not how a war against terror ends. Hamas has the upper hand," he stated.
