Politicians have reacted to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's decision of a ceasefire following two days of continued rocket attacks that left 4 Israelis dead and 234 injured.
The report comes after over 700 Hamas and Islamic Jihad rockets entered Israeli territory.
The Israeli military deployed three infantry brigades and an artillery unit to enhance the Southern Command after a long-range rocket attack on central Israel destroyed a family home in March.
Israel requested “an official postponement of the actual implementation of any understandings” with Hamas until after the April 9 election, according to a Palestinian report.
Three elite soldiers were killed by Hamas in 2014 following a cease-fire. Those decision makers are bashing the release of the meeting minutes as political propaganda weeks before the election.
According to diplomatic officials, Netanyahu was in continuous contact with the IDF chief of staff during his flight from Washington, and the directive he gave was to continue attacks inside Gaza.
Jerusalem Post staff interviewed Israelis asking whether the IDF should have gone into Gaza. To no one's surprise, they had some opinions.
A strange thing happened almost immediately after sources briefed reporters that the cabinet unanimously decided to accept a ceasefire with Hamas: ministers began denying it.
Meanwhile, peace groups around country call for a non-violent solution.
Risheq’s statement was the first sign since Sunday night’s clash between an elite IDF unit and Hamas near Khan Yunis that the movement was interested in ending the current cycle of violence.
