Sa’ar: A unilateral ceasefire will harm Israeli deterrence

New Hope leader Gideon Sa’ar criticizes the government plan to declare a unilateral ceasefire in Gaza.

He says such a move “would seriously harm Israeli deterrence” for Hamas and other terror groups.

“The cessation of Israeli military activity without imposing any restrictions preventing the arming and strengthening of Hamas and without the return of the soldiers and civilians held in Gaza will be a political failure, the price of which will be paid, with interest, in the future,” says Sa’ar.
