Israel: No Gaza ceasefire, no tolerance for kite-balloon terror

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman denied Israel had agreed to any Gaza ceasefire – certainly not for the continuation of Hamas kite-cum-balloon terror. They spoke at the weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday, while at the same time three new fires flared outside Gaza. Hamas spokesmen defined their unilateral ceasefire as following the lines of the 2014 truce which ended the last major IDF counter-terror operation, but insisted it did not cover the more recent violent border demonstrations and arson by incendiary balloon and kite.
Netanyahu declared that Israel would not tolerate any more attacks of any kind and “We will react accordingly.” He stressed: “If Hamas didn’t get the powerful message the IDF delivered on Saturday, they will get it as we go on.”
Education Minister Naftali Bennett said: “A ceasefire without cessation of terror is capitulation.” Transportation Minister Israeli Katz called on Lieberman to present the cabinet with a plan for overthrowing the Hamas regime in Gaza.

    Unless a couple of missiles land right on Bibi’s or Avigdor’s roofs,
    Nothings of consequence would be done by those hypocrites…
