Former Israeli Ambassador to US: No need to comply immediately with Obama's truce demand

Former Israeli Ambassador to US Michael Oren told Ynet that Israel need not immediately launch a ceasefire as demanded the US

 

"The continuance of IDF's presence in Gaza is an additional mean to put pressure on Hamas," he said. "You mustn't ignore President Barack Obama's arguments, but it doesn’t mean Israel needs to comply immediately with Obama's demands. We may be at the beginning of the end, but this not the end yet," said Oren.
