Ramon: Cabinet must convene to discuss truce with Hamas

Vice Premier Haim Ramon on Thursday said that the Cabinet must convene once more to discuss the truce agreement with Hamas. In a meeting with the Norwegian foreign minister Ramon reportedly said that he was not surprised by Palestinian violations of the agreement, including a Kassam attack Thursday. "If Israel does not react strongly and close the crossings [to Gaza] we will be subjected to a daily trickle of rockets in the South in an effort to force us into a pattern whereas any Israeli action in the West Bank is countered by Kassam fire," Ramon warned.
