Long-term truce uncertain, official says

A senior official tells Israeli media that it remains unclear whether the Cairo negotiations will secure a long-term truce, and adds that Israel is prepared for a potential escalation with Hamas.

“It’s not clear whether there will be a truce. There are two options on the table: if there is no truce, and the fire resumes, the response will be strong, and if the fire does not resume, we will examine the possibilities how to progress to resolve the situation,” he says.
