Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Thursday that Israel is prepared to act if Hamas breaks the Egypt-mediated truce.

“The operation’s goals were met,” Netanyahu said. “I know there are citizens that expect a harsher stand in Gaza – and we are prepared to make one. We choose when to act, against who to act and how to act,” Netanyahu added.

“Right now we’re giving the cease-fire a chance,” the prime minister said.
