Housing Minister Uri Ariel said Friday afternoon, as the security-diplomacy cabinet gathered to discuss a possible ceasefire in Gaza, that it would be wrong to stop the operation at this time.
"At a time when our forces are decisively beating Hamas, we must not stop the operation now because of foreign pressure. The IDF is winning against Hamas, let it finish the operation for all the sake of all of Israel," he said.
