Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid says the Israeli government must heed calls by the United States for a ceasefire between Israel and the Gaza terror groups, because coordination will be required with Biden administration on bigger challenges.
“[US President Joe] Biden wanted to end the operation after 11 days, when the IDF has already achieved its goals. Israel cannot ignore such a request,” Lapid says according to the Ynet news site.
“We face much greater challenges than Gaza — Iran, the nuclear deal, tensions in Syria and the strengthening of Hezbollah. All of these will require close coordination with the Americans.”
