PM's Office: Self Defense Option is on the Table

The head of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's office, Tzvi Hauser, made it clear to interviewers that the Israeli government, despite the current ceasefire, has kept the option of self defense viable if rockets continue to be launched from Gaza after the initial time given for Hamas to see to it that they are stopped.

In a Kol Yisrael radio interview, Hauser explained that the present situation made it imperative to give the ceasefire a chance. "I hope it lasts a long time", he added.
