Netanyahu: Goal in Gaza is to reach ‘lasting ceasefire’

Netanyahu says his goal for the Gaza Strip is to reach a “lasting ceasefire.”

Speaking at a press conference in Paris, he says his top priority is to achieve a sustained decrease in violence along the border and only then to work on reaching a long-term agreement with Hamas.

The prime minister also warns Israel is prepared to “employ force” in Gaza if the relative decrease in violence dissipates.
