Netanyahu to Foreign Leaders: Will Accept Comprehensive Ceasefire if the Rocket Fire Stops

The international community is beginning to press Israel to end the operation and to refrain from a ground operation in Gaza

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told foreign leaders he spoke with this weekend that he is prepared for a comprehensive ceasefire in the Gaza Strip as soon as possible, if the rocket firing stops. The foreign leaders asked Netanyahu not to escalate the fighting and to give several days to the intensive mediation efforts Egypt has been leading during the course of the weekend.
