Netanyahu: No timeframe for end of Gaza fighting, ‘we’re not standing with a stopwatch’

Briefing foreign diplomats on the efforts to end the fighting in Gaza, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says: “We’re not standing with a stopwatch. We are taking care of the operation’s objectives.”

No timeframe can be announced for an end to the armed conflict, Netanyahu says.

Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi also speaks, saying that the recently announced International Criminal Court war crimes investigation against the Jewish state will prevent Israel from advancing trust-building steps with the Palestinians.
