Herzog calls for long-term political deal

Opposition chief Isaac Herzog welcomes Israel’s acceptance of the Egyptian ceasefire terms, calling for the government to use the potential truce to make lasting changes to Israel’s political arrangement with the Palestinians.

“The government must turn the ceasefire into a political change,” the Labor leader says, according to Israel Radio.

If Israel fails to do so, says Herzog, it is only a matter of time until the next outbreak of violence.
