Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke moments ago on the ceasefire agreement which was reached today between Israel and Hamas. PM Netanyahu said, “With this it’s of course clear, Israel cannot sit with their arms folded against our enemies with their weapons of terror. And therefore, I’ve agreed with President Obama that together with the United States we will fight against these weapons of terror, most of which comes from Iran.”

He went on to say that, “The state of Israel has to try to achieve a ceasefire which will be continuous and as the prime minister it’s my responsibility, a great responsibility, to do the correct things in order to maintain our security.”

Netanyahu sent his condolences to the families in Israel who have been affected by the ongoing conflict. He thanked those who helped achieve the operation 'Pillar of Cloud.'
