As of now Israel had agreed to a 5 hour ceasefire backed by the UN. This is of course the same UN behind UNRWA, which has sheltered rocket launchers and transported terrorist and weapons in their vehicles including ambulances.
John Kerry is working hard to gain a cease fire, why.
A long term cease fire now means Hamas wins.
The time for a cease fire is after the IDF enters Gaza and destroys what needs to be destroyed to give Israel at least 20 years of ZERO rocket fire out of Gaza.
If in the end Gaza is nothing but sand, OK.
Better yet just turn off the water and electricity, after a week most of Gaza will walk out to the Sinai.
