When one month has already passed since the start of the war between Israel and Hamas, Benjamin Netanyahu has once again ruled out a ceasefire and has only agreed to daily breaks of four hours in the north of the Gaza Strip to allow the evacuation of trapped civilians and facilitate the movement of humanitarian aid.
“A ceasefire with Hamas means surrender,” the Israeli president assured the American network Fox News, explaining that there is no “timetable” for the military offensive. “I think the Israeli military is performing exceptionally well,” he said.
Netanyahu also noted that Israel has no plans to remain in Gaza in the long term: “We do not seek to govern Gaza. We are not looking to occupy it“We will have to find a government, a civil government that is there,” he added, without detailing who could form that administration.
