Responding to reports on Hamas cease fire talks, Bennett says boys will have to return home first

Responding to reports that Israel is considering a long term cessation of hostilities with Hamas, Education Minister Naftali Bennett says such an agreement will only be reached if the terror group returns the bodies of the IDF soldiers as well as Israeli citizens currently being held captive in Gaza.

In addition, he says Israel will not allow Hamas to take advantage of a cease fire to re-arm.

“If they decide to abandon the path of terror, I wish them all the success,” he says.
