Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, on Monday firmly rejected calls for a ceasefire with Hamas, as Israeli troops continued to expand operations on the ground.

“Just as the United States will not agree to a ceasefire after the bombing of Pearl Harbor or after the terrorist attack of 9/11.

“Israel will not agree to a cessation of hostilities with Hamas after the horrific attacks of October 7.

“Calls for a ceasefire are calls for Israel to surrender to Hamas, to surrender to terrorism, to surrender to barbarism. That will not happen!

“The Bible says that there is a time for peace and a time for war.

“This is a time for war, a war for a common future,” Netanyahu told journalists.

He called on all civilised nations to stand with Israel in demanding the immediate and unconditional release of the hostages and in drawing a line between the forces of civilisation and the forces of barbarism.

“The soldier was medically checked, is doing well, and has met with her family,” the IDF and the Israeli Security Agency (ISA) wrote on social media platform X, formerly Twitter, in a joint statement.

Israel’s army heralded a new phase in the war against the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, at the weekend.

In addition to massive airstrikes, Israeli ground forces advanced deeper into the territory.

Terrorists from Hamas carried out a massacre of civilians in Israel on October 7.

More than 1,400 people were killed in the massacre and in the following days.
