Peres on ceasefire: Window of opportunity to bring fighting to end

President Shimon Peres addressed the announcement of a truce to end the Gaza conflict and said that "Egypt suggested a ceasefire to open a window of opportunity to bring the fighting to an end".


Peres added that that “the fire until now brought nothing but death and damage. Hamas isolated itself, the world calls upon them to end the fire. If they continue despite the proposal they will only bring more suffering to their people.”
