Kerry-Netanyahu friction, part 94

After Kerry just said Netanyahu raised the idea of a ceasefire with him, an Israeli source rushes to deny this.

“Last night we talked, and the prime minister talked to me about an idea and a possibility of a ceasefire. He raised it with me, as he has consistently,” Kerry said a few minutes ago, adding Netanyahu said he “would embrace a ceasefire that permits Israel to protect itself against the tunnels and obviously not be disadvantaged for the great sacrifice they have made thus far.”

Er, no, says an unnamed Israeli source quoted by Channel 2. It was Kerry who raised the idea of a ceasefire.
