Herzog: Truce will become worthless if it does not lead to political agreement
Opposition leader and Labor Chairman Isaac Herzog welcomed the ceasefire and expressed hope that Hamas would respect it, adding that if the government will not know how to translate the truce politically into a more lasting political agreement, “it will become worthless and turn into another break until the next escalation.


“Unfortunately, Netanyahu did not take advantage of the years of calm in order to bring about a peace agreement. It’s time that we stop with this endless loop and understand that the only solution that will protect the safety of Israel is a long-term political agreement,” Herzog added.
