Gal-On: Staying in Gaza is a prize for Hamas

Meretz MK Zehava Gal-On on Sunday criticized the decision to keep IDF troops in Gaza in spite of the unilateral cease-fire that went into effect at 2 a.m. "Remaining in Gaza is a prize for Hamas," she said in a statement. "The moment a unilateral cease-fire was agreed upon, the IDF should have pulled out of Gaza." "This is a continuation of the foolish move to deploy ground troops, which makes Israel responsible for what goes on there," the statement continued.
