MK Merav Michaeli (Labor) welcomed the cabinet’s decision to accept the Egyptian-proposed Gaza truce, but stated: “Israel once again proved that it only understands force. In order for it to not just last for a year or a year and a half, we need to reach a political agreement”.
“Netanyahu has done what Netanyahu does – preserve the status quo,” Michaeli told Ynet’s studio. “He doesn’t like changes. Had he been responsible, he would have taken advantage of the security calm that had existed and lead us to a peace agreement.”
