Landau: Ceasefire Now Would be Serious Mistake


Minister Uzi Landau responded Sunday to rumors of a pending ceasefire. “We’re still not at the point of a ceasefire,” he said. “A ceasefire at this point would be a serious mistake.”

“We must obtain the aims of this operation at any cost, including a ground operation if absolutely necessary,” he added. “We must not repeat the mistakes of the past, when we stopped operations in the middle, before guaranteeing that the terrorists’ infrastructure was destroyed and that it was no longer possible to smuggle weapons.”
