IDF Officials Favor Ceasefire with Hamas to Gaza Offensive


The IDF is interested in reaching a ceasefire with Hamas, a military source told Arutz Sheva on Sunday. "If Hamas would stop the rocket fire, then quiet will be maintained on our part," the official, who asked to remain anonymous, stated.

The official stressed that the IDF - unlike several ministers and MKs - is not rushing to launch an immediate assault on Gaza, and would rather respond tit-for-tat with retaliatory airstrikes.
