Security Cabinet to Decide: Ceasefire or Expansion


The Israeli Security Cabinet is meeting this morning to determine Israel's next steps in Operation Protective Edge.

This morning's meeting will determine whether continue to forge ahead into Gaza or acquiesce to the demands of President Barack Obama and the UN Security Council for an immediate ceasefire. While this is being weighed, the IDF will continue to pursue its present tactic of meeting "quiet with quiet" - that is, the IDF will only respond to fire that originates from terror organizations in the Gaza Strip. At the same time, the IDF will continue to neutralize the terror tunnels.
