Meretz Chairman Oron: After action, cease-fire is a must

"At present and after the IDF operated in Gaza, there utmost importance to reach a renewal of the cease-fire agreement as soon as possible," Meretz Chairman MK Haim Oron said on Saturday. "The safety of our residents in southern Israel and that of Gilad Schalit necessitate a very careful approach toward a possible ground operation, which essentially means sinking in the Gazan mud," he said.
